Product Description

Introduce and review vowel teams with these fun three-piece puzzles! Using these puzzles will help you clearly understand your students’ knowledge of reading and spelling and will help you tailor your instruction to more specifically meet individual needs. We have found these to be very helpful as RTI activities in our classrooms.

Help your students easily spell and decode words, process words automatically and rapidly, examine patterns in words, increase vocabulary, and improve reading fluency with explicit instruction and practice! They will help your students better understand how meaning, sound, and spelling work together in written language.

All of the words used in this product include a vowel team (two vowels together). The first vowel makes a long sound, and the second vowel is silent. They include these eleven vowel combinations: ai, ay, ea, ee, ey, ie, oa, oe, ow, ue, ui.


We recommend printing these cards on cardstock and laminating them for endurance. We find it much easier to laminate the assembled puzzles before cutting apart the pieces.

This product is helpful for homework practice, center activities, and small-group assignments. The puzzles lend themselves to vocabulary development and phonetic awareness. They also provide visual cues which aid in structural analysis of words.

These puzzles are excellent for special education and ESL students and provide excellent repetition and visual cues.

For advanced students, we assign additional activities such as alphabetizing the words, defining them using the dictionary, or writing the guide words on the dictionary page where the word is found. Students also use the words provided to create sentences, stories, or poems.

You will be able to use these puzzles in so many ways!
