Long Vowel /a/ Cupcakes Freebies



We are learning long /a/ this week--and I wanted to share a two quick and easy printable activities that I made for phonics review and our word work station!  The first activity is "Color a Cupcake"--the kids had fun "decorating" their cupcakes using crayons, and then they had to read, color, cut, and glue on "sprinkles" with the long a phonics pattern, a_e.


The other activity is a game the kids will continue to play throughout the week at word work.  It is called "Shake, Read, & Color".  This partner game is very simple--the kids take turns rolling the adorable glittery cupcake die--(graphics by Glitter Meets Glue).  If it lands on "ai" the child would look at his or her own page, read an "ai" word like "chain" and then color it (if they read the word correctly).  The first player to color the entire page of cupcakes wins the game!  Easy, but great mixed review for the combinations of letters that make the long a sound.

I hope you'll enjoy using these in your own classroom!

I LOVE the shake, read, and color activity... if you made a big set of these for multiple phonics skills I would DEFINITELY buy it on TPT! It would be great to have this as a Word Work game or centers!
