Simple Rules to Remember in using “-ie-” and “-ei-“

 - by admin

“Teacher Mama, it can really be confusing sometimes. How do I spell “receive” again, with ie or ei?” Now I can make myself available to my son every chance he needs an answer but here are simple rules I taught him today that will make it easier for him to remember.

I before E, except after C
or when sounding like AY
as in neighbor and weigh

So I guess a raymond weil watch should even be easy for this lad to spell too. Because of that “ay” sound. 🙂
