    We have introduced long vowel teams starting with ai and ay, ie and igh,
    ow and oa, oe, ui, ew, and ue, ee and ea
    and y that sounds like i (one syllable words) and e (two or more syllable words), 
    au (launch) and aw (brawl).
    We have practiced r-controlled words ar (star), or and ore (explore), er (fern) , ir (third), ur (turn)
     and the soft sounds - soft c (grace) and soft g (judge), oi and oy.
    Most recently we have worked on oo - short sound (book) and oo - long sound (bloom).
