This 'Sound v' spelling quiz tests elementary school children on spellings that end with the ‘v’ sound, which is always followed by an ‘e’.

The ‘v’ sound can start a word, like ‘van’. When there is a ‘v’ sound at the end of the word, the letter ‘e’ will follow. Therefore, any time you hear a word end in ‘v’ it will actually end with ‘ve’. Can you spell these missing words?
