Foundational Reading Lesson - Long A Vowel Diagraph (ai), Grade 2

  • Activity 1 / Reading: AI Vowel Team Worksheet

    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.

  • Activity 2 / Vowel team ai Worksheet

    Digraphs are two letters that make one sound put together, and children will have a ball learning about the -ai digraph vowel teams with this adorable and entertaining worksheet. They’ll practice reading words that have the -ai digraph as well as their fine motor skills as they take a fun animal duo back to the train station. They’ll be smiling all the way as they find success in reading.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
