Story 8 of The Treadwell Primer by Harriet Taylor Treadwell revisits an old rule with more complex word forms. It’s the when-ea-makes-the-short-e-sound rule.
I found it handy to dig up the original card and add some newer, more difficult words. I chose leather, dread, ready, and meadow. You can choose whichever words you like, of course. I put the card back in the Daily section of the binder, and then we began our review frequency all over again.
It didn’t take long to get the card back to a once-per-month frequency, but it definitely helped head off any problems by showing how the rule works out in different words.
