I hope you find this resource useful! I created it after realizing that my students needed additional practice with vowel teams. This resource contains the following:
• 9 Vowel team posters (1 for each of the vowel teams: ai, ay, ey, ee, ea, ie, oa, ow, oa. These are the 9 most commonly used vowel teams that follow the pattern “When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking!) The poster includes the vowel team’s name, a chart showing where the vowel team is most commonly found in the word (for example: you almost always find the team “”ay” at the end of a word), and a picture and label to go along with the team. You can use these posters to introduce each team and then keep them up in your room for reference!
• A Bingo review game
o -Bingo cards (18) Print out as many as you need and either allow students to color in their team or use small counters to mark or laminate and use dry erase markers
o -Bingo calling cards with pictures: I suggest you go over what each picture is called prior to playing the game. This provides a good review!
o -a response sheet (to make the game more challenging, have students write the word each time you call a card)
• worksheet where students look at the picture and write the word on the line
How to play:
Distribute bingo cards to students (can be played in small or whole group; just print out enough cards for all students).
Display calling card with vowel team picture.
Students look on their bingo card for the vowel team that matches the picture and cover it, color it, etc. For a challenge, use the response sheet and have students not only look for the matching vowel tam but write the word.
Continue until someone gets a bingo! (you decide: 4 in a row, all corners, entire card, etc.)

ai: mail, nail, paint, rain, sail, tail
ay: hay, lay, pay, pray, ray, tray
ee: feed, feet, peek, peel, tee, weed
