Vowel Teams is a tough concept for our students. Whether it's the beginning stages in 1st grade or the extension stages in 2nd grade these are great pages to work on the concept of long vowel teams. You can use these seperately as worksheets or put them together as a book to use daily during your phonics instruction.
Each vowel section has an overview of the different vowel teams then pages to reinforce the skills of the spelling patterns.
Patterns covered are:
Long a - a magic e, ai, & ay (5 pages)
Long e - e magic e, ea, ee, & y at the end (5 pages)
Long i - i magic e, ie, igh, & y/ye at the end (5 pages)
Long o - o magic e, oa, oe, & ow (5 pages)
Long u - u magic e, ui, ue, & ew (4 pages)

I created these to replace our phonics book. I have created different units to cover the major areas of phonics. I use the settings on our copy machine and 11x17 paper to turn these into books for the kids to keep in their desks to use daily. You could also bind them or staple them into a book
We use the Words Their Way Spelling Inventory to group our kids based on ability.
This is one of many Phonics books I have created to teach phonics. Also checkout: Short Vowel Word Families, The Short Vowel Book, The Long Vowel Magic e book, The Ambiguous Vowel Book, The Inflectional Ending Book, Y as a Vowel, & The Dipthong Book of ew, aw, & ow.
