Each vowel digraph has:
– A poster with six illustrated examples of each word.
– A poster with a list of either ‘ai’ or ‘ay’ words.
– 1 title card and 11 illustrated words for a word wall.
– 2 recording sheets for use with the charts are also supplied.
Six worksheets are provided for each individual vowel digraph covering a range of skills:
1. Read and Draw – This worksheet requires students to read the sentence and draw the appropriate picture.
2. Read and Highlight – Students roll the die, read one sentence, and then use a highlighter to identify the vowel digraph in focus.
3. Spell the Word – Students spell the word by coloring the letters it contains
4. Missing Letters – To complete this activity, students cut out the letter tiles and paste them beside each picture in order to make a word. The remaining letters will spell a word with the vowel digraph in focus.
5. Find the Word – Students identify the word and then write it in the matching word box.
6. Spin a Picture – Students must spin a picture and then find the word on the sheet and color it.
Six worksheets that focus on both ‘ai’ and ‘ay’ words are also provided:
1. Picture Sort – Students must say what each picture is and listen for a long a or short a sound then paste it in the appropriate place.
2. ‘ai’ or ‘ay’ – Students say each picture and then determine whether it has an ‘ai’ or ‘ay’ digraph and write it in the appropriate place.
3. Word Sort – Students sort the digraphs into the appropriate column.
4. Roll and Read – Students gain practice with reading lists of words containing each vowel digraph.
5. Three in a Row – In this game for one or two players, students must identify which words are spelled with ‘ay’ and which with ‘ai’. A recording sheet is also provided.
6. Spin and Write – This advanced word work activity focuses on spelling. In order to complete the spelling of a word, students spin a vowel digraph and write it on the word wall in the correct place.
