    Help Please

    What does it mean to :
    Underline each word that contains a vowel pair or a vowel diagram.

    EX: The frezing rain and sleet beat on our gray home.

    Which words are the pair or diagram?

    The vowel pairs are in freezing, sleet, and beat.

    I don't know what a vowel diagram is.

    The word is diagraph.

    Example
    gray
    ay is a vowel diagraph.

    A vowel diagraph is when two vowels are put together to form a new sound (ea, ai, oi, oy, ow, ew, and more).

    A consonant diagraph is when two consonants are put together to form a new sound (ch, th, and more)
