Look at this:

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
frog
EDDIE SAYS
How did you do? The digraph 'ff' sound comes at the end of a word. If we hear the sound at the start of a word it is the 'f' phoneme that is used. Give the next question a try.
  • Question 2

Look at this:

giraffe

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
giraffe
EDDIE SAYS
Here the sound comes at the end of the word so the 'ff' digraph is used. You can do this!
  • Question 3

Look at this:

Finger pressing a switch

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
off
  • Question 4

Look at this:

mountains

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
cliff
  • Question 5

Look at this:

chef

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
chef
EDDIE SAYS
This is a tricky one. Although we can hear the 'f' sound at the end of the word, it is the phoneme 'f' that makes the sound. The rule is if there is a short vowel sound before the 'f' the you need to double it. The 'e' in 'chef' makes a short vowel sound. Keep up the great effort.
  • Question 6

Look at this:

leaf

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
leaf
EDDIE SAYS
Again this is an exception. The rule is if there is a short vowel sound before the 'f' the you need to double it. In this example the 'ea' makes the long vowel sound so only 'f' is needed.
  • Question 7

Look at this:

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
traffic
  • Question 8

Look at this:

dog in the snow

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
a scruffy dog
EDDIE SAYS
Did you get it write? The 'u' in 'scruffy' makes a short vowel sound so we need to double the 'f' and use the digraph 'ff'.
