This worksheet concentrates students’ focus on the vowel team /ai/. The directions state that when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking and says its name. Therefore, the vowel team /ai/ makes the long A sound. The worksheet challenges the student to find the correct path through the puzzle following only the words with the /ai/ sound. Bright illustrations of each word assist children when reading an unknown word.
