This free vowel digraph resource includes 16 word building mats to help your students practice spelling words with long a vowel digraphs ai
. A recording sheet is also included; however, if you do not wish to use the recording sheet, you can make the activity self-checking by writing the word on the back of the card. Perfect for a word work center!
To prepare the activity, laminate the cards and cut in half if desired. Students will take a card, look at the picture, and build or write the word. Sound boxes are provided. Magnet letters work well for this activity, but it can also be done as a write-and-wipe activity using dry erase markers on laminated cards or cards placed in sheet protectors.
I recommend going over the pictures as a whole group before doing this as an independent center activity.
