This download is for Long Vowel a themed literacy centers. This packet is bigger than my other phonics center packets because it contains activities for three variations of long a (ai, ay, and a_e).
4 Long Vowel a File Folder Word Wall With Pictures (long a mixed, ai, a_e, and ay)
1 Short Vowel a File Folder Word Wall
Long Vowel A (a_e, ay, and ai) Mini-Posters
e Long a Flash Card Pages (a_e, ay, and ai)
Long a Word Sort - Students will sort word-picture cards by (ai, ay, and a_e). They will then record their work.
Search/Read/Write the Room - Students will search the room for picture-word cards. They will record their findings on a recording sheet. I have included four versions for this. You can do each long a spelling in isolation or combine them, depending on the recording sheets.
Roll and Write a Word - Students will roll a word and then record it on a recording sheet. They will continue to roll until one word has "won." They will then analyze their data. (Two versions)
Magnify Tiny Long a Words - Students will use a magnifying glass to find tiny words with Long a words. They will then record their work.
Writing Center - Students will create their own "My Little Book of Words with Long Vowel a."
Long Vowel a Rhymes - Students will match word/picture cards with their rhyming words. They will record and illustrate their rhymes.
Long Vowel a Themed Build a Sentence - Students will arrange picture cards in the right order to tell a complete sentence. They will record their sentences.
Build a Word - Students will build words using picture cards containing a beginning sound, a long vowel a sound, and an ending sound. Or they will find words with a beginning sound and the long a sound at the end of the word (ay). They will then record and illustrate their words.
Spin a Word - Students will spin a beginning sound and an ending sound to build a word ending in -ay, -ain or -ake. They will then record their work. Nonsense words will also be recorded under a nonsense word column.
I hope these centers help your students with long vowel a!
