This is a fun game to play with your students to reinforce the long a sound made by ai or ay. Sometimes getting your students to apply phonics rules consistently can be difficult. Playing this whole group game gives your students fun extra practice on reading words with the ai or ay pattern! There are 32 cards in the game so there are enough for large classes, while small classes can double up on cards. This is a St. Patrick's Day themed game - I find that the cute clipart helps keep my students interested!
