I had a special request to make some flashcards for young readers to practice vowel team skills. These umbrella flashcards for words with -ai or -ay are the beginning of this request. I will add more vowel teams later this week.
The ai-ay vowel team flashcards will give beginning readers opportunity to practice words that have –ay at the end of the word of –ai in the middle of a word. Because it may be hard for beginning readers to remember to say the long a sound these vowel teams I have made 2 versions of these flashcards.
Version 1 – words are written normally, no modifications.
Version 2 – the vowel team is underlined to remind your student that these vowels work together to say the long a sound.
Also included is a raindrop game board.
Students place the cards upside down. Each player has their own game board. For each card they read correctly they get to put a marker down on the board. The first child to cover all of the raindrops is the winner.
