Here is a word study chart that I am using to help them take charge of their learning by encouraging them to "discover" long vowel pattern rules like, if you hear the long o sound at the end of a word, use the ow pattern. There are lots of discoveries kids can make. I spent the first few years teaching word study and pointing things out, thinking that kids would remember. I said things like, "look! If you hear a long vowel use ch (like in peach) and if you hear a short vowel use tch (like in catch). I would hear "ooohhhh" like everything was clear as a bell but many still would forget the rule. Now I do everything I can to have students discover their own rules. I won't give it to them ever. It doesn't help. If they discover it, they own it. You will sometimes see me pulling my hair asking kids what they hear and what they know about sounds and how are the sounds the same and how are they different and any question I can think of without telling them a rule.
I hope this poster helps you as much as it has helped me!
