1. How many words can you find with ee occurring in the spelling? (Omigosh! There are tons of such words, such as seek, peek, and week.)

 

2. How many words can you find with oo occurring in the spelling? (Omigosh! There are tons of such words, such as book, cook, and look.)

 

3. How many words can you find with aa occurring in the spelling? (The only one I can come up with is the very fist word in the dictionary, and I suppose a second word can be made by adding the letter s at the end.)

 

4. How many words can you find with uu occurring in the spelling? (The only one I can come up with is a word which describes a machine used to keep rugs clean or describes a region containing absolutely nothing, and I suppose a second word can be made by adding the letter s at the end.)

 

5. Aaaaaaaahhhhh!!! Now for the hard question! How many words can you find with ii occurring in the spelling? (I can think of two, but I am not going to tell you what they are! I will give you a hint, however. You will no longer have a word if you add the letter s at the end of either of the two words that have ii in the spelling.)

 

6. How many words can you find with yy occurring in the spelling? (I can not think of a single word!)
