Practice for the vowel dipthongs oo, oo, ou, ow, aw, au, oi, oy. Contains 78 target words with semantic clues and riddles. Each target word contains a blank space for inserting the correct diphthong. Students first determine the target word after reading the clues. Then, determine the missing sound and the corresponding diphthong. Clues are presented on two different pages for teacher preference (putting clue page back to back with word page or stapling clue page to word page).
Put the target words and clues back to back inside a sheet protector to reuse, or put each word page in sheet protector with one printed clue page for the group. Students keep track of their words and clues with the color coding.
Step 1 is a vocabulary/comprehension task, while Step 2 is phonics. Great way to target both phonics and comprehension at the same time. Enjoy!
