When we work on breaking down new words phonetically, we often look at the vowels to best understand the sounds that are coming out of the word. When words possess a common vowel pattern, if you can pronounce one word, you can pronounce them all. Students often confuse the role of a diphthong and vowel diagraph. If we just remember that diphthongs are the sounds made by the letters and diagraphs are just the letters themselves, we can get somewhere. These worksheets will help students understand the role of these vowels in words and their pronunciation.
