This long e phonics unit (featured in the Scholastic Teacher Magazine!) invites students to a fancy party where they will learn about how fancy y sounds like long e when it comes at the end of a two syllable word. This unit provides six engaging, fun, and hands on fancy and tasty themed activities for your students to learn and apply the long e spelled as y spelling pattern!
The long e activities include:
*a fancy party invitation for you to use for your classroom
*long /e/ fancy y poster with recommend books to read (the Fancy Nancy series works great with this unit!)
*long /e/ and long /i/ spelled as y word sorts with recording sheets
*a starry class game to identify long /e/ spelled as y words
*long /e/ spelled as y word hunt with recording sheets
*long /e/ as y classy book activity (make a class book of fancy words)
The activities are a mixture of whole class, small group, and center activities and many can be easily adapted to meet the needs of your classroom due to the detailed instruction page for each activity. Answer keys, the option of lined or ruled worksheets, and the option of color or black and white are also available for some pages.
