Introduce your students to a neat phonics teaching tool by using each of these worksheets.

Vowel teams are one of the biggest culprits of spelling errors.  There instances when a single vowel team can result in a half of a dozen different sounds.  The are many instances where vowels are written over two letters.  These instances are referred to as vowel digraphs. The term digraph breaks down into two written forms.  In some circumstances this produces a single sound.   Learn how digraphs are pronounced can help improve your reading ability and help you form a more natural dialect with your spoken language.   This is present in words such as soon and heel.  The sound given off by this combination is different from the sound of the singular vowel.  There is also a classification of that takes two different vowel sounds that merge into one. These sounds are called diphthongs.

We present you with 15 lessons that teach kids about the power of two vowels connected together and how to pronounce the double vowel words. For example, you instruct your students that READ has two different pronunciations, depending on whether the word is used in the past or present tense. One lesson asks students to add the correct vowel diagraph to a word placed within a sentence. Each worksheet starts as a PDF file, which you can print to make sure every student has an effective teaching tool to take home. Keep your kids engaged in the classroom by teaching them how to use vowel diagraphs within a wide variety of sentences.
