Phonics (Diphthongs) Lapbook


To help my younger two girls review phonics and practise their spelling, I designed some Phonics Lapbooks and worksheets.

I designed this set of lapbook elements and worksheets to complete this Lapbook on Diphthongs. This lapbook covers 8 common diphthongs: ee, oo, ai, ea, ou, ow, oa and ue. I have made all the printables free to download from the Diphthongs Section.

You can download all the templates and worksheets for this lapbook in one folder HERE.

I made the lapbook by folding a sheet of A3 card in half and gluing down the foldable elements, one for each sound, inside, four per side. This is how it looks when opened.


There is a foldable for each diphthong sound with six flaps on each. On the front of the flap is an image and my girls cut out the words and pasted them down under the correct flaps.



After completing the lapbook element, my girls then went on to complete the worksheets for each sound.


I put all their worksheets into display pocket folders so that they can look at them anytime to remind themselves of what they have been learning.






I have also designed worksheets for a Digraphs Lapbook covering a further eight sounds. You will find the free pages under the Digraphs Section.

For the early learners, you could start with this First Phonics File Folder Game.
