"Blue" doesn't seem to fit because it's not a long u sound (as the u in uniform).

I think blue does have a long vowel sound. Like the words use and uniform.
I will check out the websites after school today. Are you sure Blue is vowel digraph?

I'm not sure about blue at all, no.
Thank you. I have all the websites you listed in my favorites file so I can check them after school today. Thanks so much.
Blue is listed as a vowel phoneme in that second link I gave you.

So I guess "blue" works after all!!
You're very welcome.
