This center has -ate, -ame, -ake, -ale, and -ace words. There are 52 long /a/ cards and 12 fun cards.
Directions: Place all the cards in one pile upside down. Students will take turns picking up one card at a time and reading the word on the card. If they can read the word on the card, the student keeps the card. If the student is unable to read the word, the card goes back to the bottom of the pile. Whoever has the most cards at the end of the game wins.
I hope your students enjoy this center as much as my class does.
