The page with the picture of the bee ( _e_) is misleading because that will form the long e sound with the spelling choice ‘ee’.

Lisa Donoghue · Feb 24th, 2019

Hi Lisa,
I completely agree it is misleading, especially for struggling students. We have changed ‘bee’ for ‘leg’ in this case.
If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Is it possible to have these with just beginning missing and then another set with just ending missing?
