This activity is super easy to do.  First, the children sound out the word on the card and then say that word aloud. Next, they place a clothespin on the picture that matches the word they just read.

This allows them to practice three skills. They get to practice reading “long a” words, then there is a little comprehension work as they find the picture that matches the word they read. Finally, they get in some fine motor skills as they squeeze the clothespin to put it on the right letter.

There is so much work being done with these simple “long a” clip cards.
