Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

These letters are called vowels.

Listen to the sounds these vowels make:

a e i o u

 

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

Listen to the sounds.

 

ee
ie
ue
oe
ae

 

 

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 eve
ie becomes i_e in white
ue becomes u_e in June
oe becomes o_e in alone
ae becomes a_e in came

 

 

Now use these split digraph sounds and spellings in the worksheet.
