Vowel Diphthongs: "Ew"
What do jewels, stew and dew all have in common? The diphthong "EW" of course! Diphthongs are combinations of two letters, which are usually vowels (but, as in the case of this dipthong—not always!) that make a new sound. Your second grader will get some great phonics practice with words containing the "EW" letter combination.
