"Rising Sun" follows the explaination that, although "ie" sometimes makes the long "i" sound, it usually makes the long "e" sound. There are fourteen different words in the story, giving the student plenty of opportunities to practice the new skill.
Below is a partial lesson, giving examples of the different sounds that "ow" makes.
