Writing the room makes learning fun! In this pack students will go on a word hunt for words that have the long /a/ sound in the middle of the word. Words included have the following letter patterns: ai, ay, a_e (bossy e). There are 20 words on 2 different kinds of cards - one kind has the word and the picture and the other kind has the word alone. Various recording sheets allow students to write the words, sentences, rhyming words, word families and other skills.
