This is a poster that I created for my grade 4 students to review the different ways that the long sound of a can be represented in words. This idea came about as we were working on the spelling of words with /ei/ and /ie/. I think that it is a smart idea to go back to the basics to guide them into learning this often difficult concept. You can print them as posters or they make the review sheet for students notebooks. Simply click the picture below to be taken to the free resource.
