Sometimes ea says e, sometime ey, sometimes ee, etc etc. I figured if it was slightly overwhelming to be (someone who can read and spell these words already) that perhaps some extra fun practice would be a good plan

How to Use the Double E Word Slider
The idea behind this printable is just fun practice. Simply cut out the bee and the little slits for the slider. Slide the extra letters in so you can see the letters in the little window.
Then slide the letters up and down and see what words you can make! Start with just the slider on the left first to find all the words without an ending consonant.
There is an included recording sheet so you can make words, determine if they are real or nonsense, and write them down. You can ever have a race to see if you’ll finish the real or nonsense words first!
I think reading some nonsense words can help to ensure kids are sounding out words and not just reading them. We don’t use nonsense words often, but sometimes they are good for that clarification.
Having said that, you may encounter some nonsense words that are homophones for real words, like seet. It would be a good conversation starter for homophones, if nothing else.
