Do your students have trouble distinguishing between the short and long a vowel sounds?
If so, this is the product they need. In this 9 page packet, I have included a sorting mat and a sheet of 16 short/long a words that can be printed once, laminated and used over and over for a center.
I've also included it in an individual student worksheet form if you would like each student to have their own copies and for you to be able to easily check their work. All they will need to do is cut out the words and paste them where they belong.
The words included are:
Short A: hat, sat, had, hat, pal, man, ant, apple
Long A: rate, hay, name, paid, play, eight, late, tailor
Reinforcement also comes in the form of 2 worksheets for this center/lesson.
****The first worksheet allows students to fill in the blank with the correctly spelled short/long a word.
****The second worksheet is a short passage for the students to read which contains many short and long a words. They will highlight the words different colors based on the sound. 2 literal and 1 higher level thinking question is included with the passage.
Answer key is provided.

Buying them separately would cost $7.50, but by buying the bundle (whoa, alliteration!) you're saving almost 25%!
Your kids will love these. I've used them time and time again with my students, and they're always a hit!
