Diphthongs and Silent Letters Units (Lessons 95-98)
A Diphthong is sound produced by combining two vowels, gliding the tongue from one position to another during articulation (e.g., /ow/, /oy/). These lessons are designed to build students’ accuracy and automaticity in recognizing diphthongs. The lessons also build students’ proficiency in reading and spelling words that contain diphthongs.
The Silent Letters Unit only consists of one lesson, but this lesson instructs students on three common silent letter patterns (e.g., kn-, wr-, and -mb). This lesson is designed to build students’ accuracy and automaticity in recognizing silent letter patterns. The lesson also builds students’ proficiency in reading and spelling words that contain silent letter patterns.
