Vowel Teams

This is one section of a Phonics Kit that you can create. Many of the resources are provided by the websites below for personal or classroom use. See the full post for more resources!

Vowel Teams (with the exception of diphthongs, which usually make new sounds) are often long, making the sound of the 1st vowel & the 2nd vowel is silent. This guideline is sometimes not reliable, however. There can be many exceptions. EA often makes the long E sound, but sometimes a short E sound (eat or bread). IE often makes the long I sound, but sometimes a long E sound (pie or thief).

WATCH When 2 Vowels Go Walking from Jack Hartmann (2:46) Kids vs Phonics: A (5:02), E (4:56), I (6:13) O (1:23) U (1:50). All Patterns (4:13), OA from Kizphonics (1:22).

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
