Foundational Reading Lesson - Long O Vowel Diagraphs (oa ow), Grade 2

  • Activity 1 / Reading: OA or OW Worksheet

    Decoding words is easier when students understand digraphs. A digraph is two letters that have only one sound.  In this worksheet, students look at a picture and then complete the spelling for each word. The worksheet focuses on words with the /oa/ and /ow/ spellings.  Use this printable in your reading classroom as well as for spelling practice. This worksheet is ideal for young and emergent readers.

  • Activity 2 / Reading: Long O Digraphs Worksheet

    Reading and decoding words is complex when students begin learning about digraphs. A digraph is two letters that represent one sound. This worksheet focuses on the digraphs that have the long O sound. Students read each word and identify whether the digraph spelling is /oa/ or /ow/.  Knowing the sounds of digraphs gives students the skills needed to decode more words and become confident readers.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
