Word Patterns: -ay word family

When children can 'break up' words and recognise familiar patterns in them, it opens up a whole new range of knowledge; they can use the familiar patterns and phonemes (letter sounds) to predict words they have never seen before, e.g. if they know the common word day (d + ay), they can read may, hay, stay etc.

This month's free game download is 'May Day', with a range of words based on the /ay/ pattern. You can download and print it onto thin card (laminate for best results). You will also need dice and movers/tokens to play the game.
