Digraphs: aw & au

Digraphs: aw & au

Help your child understand digraphs by doing word building activities at home. For example, use wooden letters or alphabet magnets to create words with tricky digraphs. Next, draw a picture of each word to make the learning stick!
When introducing a spelling pattern, be sure to include words that visually match the pattern but do not produce the same sound. For example, laugh has the "au" digraph but instead produces a short A sound.
