This week we will explore diphthongs. Two vowels together sometimes form brand-new sounds that are neither long nor short. They are called diphthongs. Once again, there is not a rule that helps when deciphering which spelling to use. Therefore, we are giving you the words this week. Study! Study!
Focus: ou, ow
Words: now, cow, power, clown, howl, our, mouth, proud, snout, house, ouch
Red Words: should, would, could, does, want
