Let’s Begin…

Vowels are special letters. A word cannot exist without a vowel! But sometimes, when vowels are paired up with different letters they can make unique sounds. These sounds are called vowel diphthongs. Today we're going to learn about what happens when O is paired up with Y, U, and W. We'll see what new sounds O can make and what words these sounds can help us to read and write!

What two letter combinations make the same sound?
