Practice with Words Containing Long A Sound
These words with the long A sound can be tricky because students must determine if the word contains an ay or ai. It will take some practice for students to master the spellings of these words.
To help students get started, make an anchor chart for practicing words with the different letter combinations.
Write ai and ay at the top.
Have students name words with the long a sound as you write each word in the correct column.
Some words to suggest if your children get stuck are trail, mail, sail, paint, braid and brain. Ay words you can use are pay, stay, tray, birthday, sway and play.
