The students read words that contain
long vowel a (ai/ay, a-e)
long vowel e (ee/ea, ie/y)
long vowel i (ie,/igh/y, i-e, i/o)
long vowel o (oa/ow, o-e)
long vowel u (u-e)
After decoding the word, they sort into categories by real words and nonsense words. This packet also contains a second version that requires students to add one more word of their own to each category.
