Would you teach your students a reading rule, if the rule only worked or was applicable less than 50% of the time? The saying: When two vowels go a walkin', the first one does the talkin' is a rule that most learners know. But if your students apply this to a comprehensive exam on vowel teams or vowel combinations, they would likely fail the test. Clearly, this rule creates more confusion than good.
What are the Vowel Teams?
Vowel teams or vowel combinations are when two to four letters that include at least one vowel make a single sound. They are a critical piece to any phonics or Orton Gillingham reading program, and the mastery of this skill can really assist with decoding skills.
