Ideas to help you: 

Draw a ‘noughts and crosses’ board like in the example below, then write a word with the ‘ai’ spelling in each of the spaces.

Take it in turns to read a word then place a counter (or anything you can find to cover the word) over the word. The first to have three words in a row covered is the winner. 

 

Outdoors:

Write some ‘ai’ words on the ground, aim and throw a pebble or a stick to land on a word then sound it out and read it. Alternatively, write the words on paper and stick them up outside and using a water pistol/old washing up bottle, then read a word and squirt it with water.

 

Phonics Challenge:

 

Look at the pictures below, pick the correct ai/ay spelling for each word.

Can you read these sentences?

Today  I  want  to  play  with  the  train, I  do  not  want  to  play  with  clay.

On  Sunday  I  am  afraid  that  it  may  rain  in  Spain!

 

 

 

 

 There are also some ready-made tasks to print and complete if you’d like them.
