Product Description
Long A Spellings are an important part of our very tricky language. Vowel posters are helpful to students, but Cracking the Spelling Code takes vowel posters and spelling charts a step further so students not only know the different ways to spell Long A but how to differentiate between the different spellings.

I developed Cracking the Spelling Code because I was frustrated when teaching long vowels spellings. I would teach them but then not be sure on what to tell students when they asked,"Well when do I use ai or ei or what’s the different between ai or ay?" Cracking the Spelling Code answers those questions with tricks, examples, posters that, spelling charts and even songs and sayings.

Long A Spellings Included
a, a-e, ai, ay, eigh, ei, ey, ea, aigh
