Early Reader Stories: Long O Sounds

Study these Long O spellings: o (when O is the last letter) oa, o_e and ow. Other O sounds are: ow/ou, oy/oi and o(u). Ow/ou=a double vowel sound (ow is sometimes a long O, sometimes a double vowel as in "down" and "ouch"), oy, oi=another double vowel, a long O to long E sound as in "boil," and lastly, o(u), a reduced O that sounds like the "u" in "up." Vowels often reduce to this simple sound in common words.
