This no-prep Long Vowel A pack features the vowel patterns ai and ay. Throughout the pack, you will find activities dedicated to these vowel teams independently, as well as combined.
Activities with a 1 indicate that it is a mixed -ay and -ai activity.
Activities with a 2 indicate that there is an -ay and an -ai option.
Activities with a 3 indicate that there is an -ay, -ai, and a mixed option.
Spell it (3): Students will write the long a word on the space provided.
*Read it (1): Students will read the passage, highlight the long a words, and try to answer the comprehension questions.
Draw it (3): Students will read the word and draw a picture to match.
*Search it (2): Students will look at the pictures and find the matching word in the word search.
Match it (3): Students will draw a line to match the picture and the word.
Color it (1): Students will color the pictures that have a long a sound and record the words they colored.
*Find it (1): Hang cards around the room. Students will “Write the Room” and record their answers on the recording sheet, sorting by vowel pattern. Note: One set of cards includes a picture and a word, and the other has only a picture. If you use both sets at the same time, I would recommend copying each set on a different color and telling students which color cards they’re searching for during the activity.
*Indicates there is a challenge option.
