Product Description

This sample digraph resource includes 16 word building mats to help your students practice spelling words with long a vowel digraphs ai and ay.

Vowel Digraphs Freebie! - ai / ay

This sample digraph resource includes 16 word building mats to help your students practice spelling words with long a vowel digraphs ai and ay. 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.

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.

About the Seller

Second Grade Smiles

I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.

I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.

I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
