These diphthong word lists were created for phonics instruction during a word recognition lesson plan. The word lists are systematic and sequential. The 10 days cover digraphs and a few vowel digraphs. (i.e. Day 1 ow, Day 2 ou, Day 3 oy, Day 4- oi, Day 5- au, Day 6- aw, Day 7- al, Day 8- oo, Day 9- oo and Day 10- reviews all diphthongs and vowel digraphs words.) This resource also covers 10 days of diphthong and vowel digraph word lists. All word lists have real and nonsense words (each list has 20 words). The words review beginning and ending digraphs, beginning and ending blends, and advanced consonants. The patterns of the words are CVC, CVVC, CCVVC, CVVCC and CCVVCC.
I have personally used these diphthong word lists in my small reading groups. My students were able to apply their decoding skills to develop fluency in reading diphthong words. These word lists are an excellent phonics resource, which can be used to individualize your intervention reading groups. They are a great resource for students to reference for additional reading support. Each page contains 3 of the same daily word lists. This way you can cut the paper into 1/3. I printed mine on cardstock and bound them together with a chicken ring. For bigger groups, I printed each day on different colors of cardstock, so I could easily check to see if all students where on the correct day. Hope you enjoy this product!
