Alexander Graham Bell
Skill: The vowel sound /au/ can be spelled with au and aw. The vowel team au is most often used in the beginning or middle of a word. The letters aw are usually used at the end of the word, or followed by k, l, or n.

Skill: The vowel team ea can stand for the short e sound as in bread. When reading a word with ea, first try the long e sound, then the short e sound. The context of the sentence will also help a reader with the sound of the word.
