ay Sound Game
Who knew that there were so many ways to make the long a sound! My students recently discovered this when they learned the 3 different ways to make the sound over the last few weeks. “ay” was the final way learned so I created this game to help them practice using “ay.” The game also includes long a words that use the magic e and ai (vowel team).
copy game board(s)
print, copy and cut “ay” money
print, copy and cut “ay” and long a cards
print, copy and assemble player wallets
Place the money on the game board. Place the “ay” and long a cards face down in a pile next to the game board.
Players choose a playing piece and a wallet.
Players place their pieces on the game board.
Players roll a die and move that many spaces. If he lands on an “ay ____” space, he picks a card and blends the sound with “ay.” If he is correct (according to other players), he put an “ay dollar” in his wallet. If he is wrong, he waits until his next turn.
If he lands on a long a card space, he picks a card from the long a pile and reads the word. No dollars collected.
Other spaces are self-explanatory.
My students LOVED this game. I think it was the wallets and dollars that they really enjoyed. 🙂
Note: This game works well with Words Their Way: Within Word Pattern Sorts 12 and 13.
