The rules for this game are pretty easy, as we want the focus to be on reading the words.

  1. Players will take turns rolling the die and moving that many spaces on the game board.
  2. As they land on the words they read each “ai” word. (I had my little ones move the correct number of spaces, and then we went back and read the words they had passed.)
  3. If they land on a rain cloud, they have to move back 2 spaces. (Don’t forget to read those words)
  4. If they land on a rainbow, they get to slide on the rainbow to the connecting space. (You can decide if the rainbow only makes them move forward, or if they have to move backwards too.)
  5. The first person to get to the large purple star wins!!

Before reading these words, it may be helpful to go over to review that “ai” makes the Long a sound.

It is also important to point out, that the “ail” make a different sound. That “l” often changes the sound of the vowel, and our struggling readers need extra practice learning that specific sound. Before jumping into the game it may help to practice reading all the “ail” words.

sail, nail, pail, snail, trail, jail, ailment,

The “air” sound is also a little different too. Once again, having our little ones read all the “air” words at one time will help them learn this sound.

air, airline, pair, chair, fair, stairs.

Enjoy a little fun while practicng reading words that have “ai”.
