Help your students remember the rule for when two vowels are together in a word. Kathy Griffin creates a song that is repetitive and catchy which includes example words that contain these vowel combinations. Use this song when working in small groups or guided reading to support their word work or reading strategies. Locate the words that have this phonics rule on your word wall to help with reading and spelling. When they come to a word such as boat, remind them of the song, "oa says o, o, o." Download the preview to hear a short clip of the song.
Look for the .mov file and books that go along with this song on Kathy Griffin's TPT store. Use the .mov file on your interactive whiteboard, Smart Board, or student computers. Use the book for independent reading, guided reading, listening center, or as homework reinforcement.
The song "Two Vowels Together Rule" is from "Growing Dendrites with Kathy Griffin." Music performed, recorded, and produced by Lane A. Lollar and Maury Tindle at Studio Two Recording, Tulsa, OK. studiotworecording.com
