This is a set of task cards that give students practice with words that have the long /a/ sound, spelled with -ai and -ay. Each card gives a word that has the long /a/ sound and a picture. Students must decide if the word can be completed with -ai or -ay. These cards can be used for independent practice, as a literacy center activity, for a SCOOT game, or as take-home practice. Task cards are also a great resource to use for language arts intervention as well. Depending on your students' skill levels, these cards can be used with students in first grade through third grade. Included in this set are 26 task cards, an answer recording sheet, and an answer key. For best results, laminate the cards before use.
