Vowel Team Puzzles or Diphthong
I use these with my kids after I introduce the concept. When students are working on word work, they can match up these puzzles. There are options for color and black/white to save ink for the puzzles.
There are puzzles for:
AU, AW, EW, OI, OO (like book), OO (like boom), OU, OW, OY. There is a 4 piece puzzle for each diphthong, as well as a separate 2 piece puzzles (for you to differentiate based on students needs.) Students will match the puzzle pieces together based on similar vowel sounds.
I would recommend printing on color card stock and laminating for student use and to lengthen durability.
