This product contains 24 cards with words that have the long vowel a patterns (ai, ay, a_e) Whenever my kids are starting to learn a new pattern, I want to give them as many opportunities as possible to read words with that pattern. This game gives them the a fun way to practice reading those pattern words. I typically put this out during literacy center time. The directions for the game are included in the download. I can't take credit for the SLAP game. I have seen teachers use it with sight words and thought why not use it with pattern words, math equation, etc,!!
