Hello, this is the fourth part of Reading 4. We've been learning a lot of new things this week... all about silent 'e' and the two sounds 'Y' makes when its the vowel. And you know, no one, not even a grown-up can remember everything he hears the first time he hears it. So if you're reading and you can't remember something I've told you, well, there's something that you could always do and that's TRY.
Earlier, we were learning that 'y' can have a long /i/ sound when there's no other vowel in the world. Here in the word 't-r-y' /y/ says the long 'i' sound because there's no other vowel.
Now let's try some more other words, 'd-a-d-d-y', you think it might be "deyde" but that's no word, how about 'duhdee', not either. How about ' Daddy'? That's the word, the same thing as 'baby'.
