Your students will have so much fun discovering these Halloween Mystery Pictures while playing with diphthongs! It’s a simple yet very effective way to practice phonology. 

Each grid is filled with words containing vowel diphthongs. Your students will have to identify the correct pronunciation of the words before coloring the picture following the given color code. 

Please note, contrary to the pictures, the given words are not Halloween related. 

Here are the pictures and the diphthongs used in the corresponding grid:

  • a spider, /ei/, /ai/, /ɔɪ/ and /əʊ/
  • a jack o'lantern, /ei/, /ai/, /ɔɪ/ and /əʊ/
  • Frankenstein, /ei/, /ai/, /ɔɪ/ and /əʊ/
  • a skull, /ei/, /ai/ and /ɔɪ/
  • a candy bag,  /ei/, /ai/, /aʊ/
  • a ghost, /ei/, /ai/, /aʊ/ and /əʊ/

A complete answer key is provided.

You can assign these mystery pictures at the end of a lesson on diphthongs, give them as homework or use them with your fast finishers. 

This resource is at the same time a fun Halloween coloring activity and a great way to practice phonology. I’m sure your students will ask for more!
