To identify diphthongs: ou, ow, and oy. (RF.K.2)
Materials: three circus tents, diphthong cards, tickets
Procedures: Explain to your child the sound of each diphthong. Draw or print out circus tent clipart and write a diphthong on each. Write words containing these sounds on tickets. Your child will read each word and match the ticket to the correct tent.
Conclusion: Have your child read the words again. Then she can count the tickets to see which tent had the most
