Product Description
This lesson is based on Orton Gillingham multisensory language development principles.

For many students, without direct, explicit instruction of vowel diphthongs such as "ow (cow)," there will be a breakdown each time a word is read that includes a diphthong. Why? Well, students many know that vowel teams, two vowels next to each other make the long sound of the first vowel. Diphthongs differ because they are two vowels together, or side-by-side, but the sound made is unique. Basically, the two vowel sounds are not heard, but a distinctly different on. So, it is easy to understand how struggling readers might falter when decoding or reading words with diphthongs.

Vowel Diphthongs are two vowels, side-by-side, that make their own unique sound. When coding syllables with diphthongs, circle the diphthong and write DT under the syllable.
