When certain vowel sounds are joined together, they often work together to create a unified vowel sound. One example of this is in the word reach, in which the e and the a combine to make the long e sound.
Some letter combinations represent more than one sound. For example, oo makes different sounds in book and mood and ea makes different sounds in bead and head. To lessen confusion, explicitly teach these differences and associate the different sounds with key words.
Teaching students the characteristics of letter combinations is crucial, so the sooner students learn these basic concepts, the sooner they’ll be able to read and spell more words.
