Many of my first and second friends are now working with long vowel sounds. Those vowels can be so tricky as sometimes the vowel says a short sound and sometimes a long sound, and then to top it off, there are several different spelling patterns for long vowels. When our young readers are learning these patterns, reference posters often help. I created this poster just for this purpose. You can download this freebie by just clicking the link below.

I created the Long Vowel Sounds Spelling Patterns activity for my first and second grade friends to practice the long vowel sounds spelling patterns. Each booklet contains 16 practice cards with the spelling patterns presented on the cover.
Simply laminate the cards and bind them together with a loose leaf ring. Have your students write the correct spelling pattern for each word using a dry erase marker. After use, wipe the card clean and use over and over again. This activity is great for either independent centers or as an activity for introducing long vowel sounds during small group instruction.
If your students need added practice with this skill you may also be interested in the Long Vowel Sound Sorting activity.
