Worksheet Overview

These letters are called vowels.


Listen to the sounds these vowels make:



a e i o u


If you put two vowels together to make a sound, it is called a digraph.


Listen to these digraphs. 


ou or
ea  or


When you put another letter in the middle of the digraph, it splits the letters up in a word.

The digraph still makes the same sound, but it is called a split digraph.


ee becomes e_e in even
ie becomes i_e in white
ue becomes u_e in June
oe becomes o_e in alone
ae becomes a_e in came
