This collection of 12 worksheets has been designed to help students practise their knowledge of vowel digraphs. Understanding vowel digraphs is a fundamental skill in phonics and reading, and it plays a crucial role in assisting students to become proficient readers and writers.
Vowel digraphs are combinations of two vowels that create a single sound. They can be found in many English words and are essential for students to master as they progress in their reading and writing skills. Vowel diagraphs are sometimes called vowel teams, as they work together to create one sound. The vowel digraphs covered in this set of worksheets include:

Each worksheet includes lines to practice writing the two vowels and some activities to enhance recognition of each vowel team!
What are Vowel Teams?
You might hear the term vowel teams used to talk to students about vowel digraphs. Vowel teams is a pedagogical concept that has been developed to describe and teach the phenomenon of vowel combinations in the English language. It’s not a term that has a long historical or etymological origin like many English words. Instead, it has emerged as part of the teaching and study of phonics and phonetics.
It’s a way to simplify the concept of two vowels coming together to create a unique sound when spoken.
