FREE PRINTABLE Long A Word List

FREE PRINTABLE Long A Word List - From TeacherHelpForParents.com

Before beginning long vowel sound word lists, let’s review what makes a long vowel sound. One way to describe this spelling is to present the letter “e” as “bossy e.” Explain to your child that, in a root word, when there is a vowel-consonant-e, the letter “e” is bossy and makes the vowel say its name. The letter “e” is then silent when you read the word

Another way that long a is spelled is “ai.” Teach your child the famous saying, “When two vowels go a walking, the first one does the talking.”

Long a can also be spelled “ay.”

Finally, long a is also spelled “eigh.”

Explain to your child there are other ways to spell long a as well that will be discussed at a later time.

Word Sort
Read over the list of long a words together. On the top of a sheet of paper, make four columns with the four different ways to spell long a mentioned here. Sort the words and write them under the correct heading.

Example:

A consonant E Ai Eigh Ay
Rate Drain Eight Say
Blade Rain Weigh Day

Begin by writing the words on index cards. Continue practicing with your child until he or she can say the words accurately. Mix the cards up each time to further help with reading practice.

Once your child can read the words on the index cards, print out this list of words. Start by reading the list to him or her. Then, have your child read with you. Finally, have your child read independently. The goal is for your child to be able to read each list in under one minute.

Creating Your Own Word Lists

Creating Word Lists Together With Your Child - From TeacherHelpForParents.com

Once your child knows a letter or sound, you can begin making your own word lists together.  Word lists take letters and sounds to a higher level of learning where your child applies what he or she has learned.

Let’s take for example that you are working on the /oi/ sound.  After explaining the sound and some sample words, you can come up with more words together.  Post a large piece of paper on the refrigerator with /oi/ on the top.  As your child thinks of words through out the day or week, write them on the paper together.  Underline the letters that make the /oi/ sound.

To take it a step further, make two columns on the paper.  One side can say “oi” and the other “oy.”  Have your child decide which column the word belongs, and write it there.  Hint: most root words with the /oi/ sound at the end are spelling “oy.”  Most root words with the /oi/ sound in the middle are spelled “oi.”

Example:

/oi/

oi oy
coin toy
boil boy
choice joy
noise overjoyed
This is an example of the root word (joy) ending in “oy.”

You can also use this idea for early learners.  After they learn a new letter of the alphabet, you can write that letter on a paper on the fridge.  As they think of words that begin with that letter, write the words on the paper.
