Since our phonics skill this week is /ea/, I made a helper chart for these two vowels, along with the song from Starfall. If you haven't seen it, you must check it out here! I show this video to my kids when I introduce this new sound and it really helps.Thanks for the great idea, Babbling Abby! :)

Last week, our phonics skill was /ai/ and /ay/. I was tickled pink when I saw a chart for this skill on Babbling Abby's teacher blog The Inspired Apple. She made the cutest 'ai' and 'ay' people, along with a memorable story to help inforce the sound. I made my own 'vowel people" and told my kids the story of the old married couple. They loved it! One of my kids even randomly raised his hand in the middle of a math lesson and said, "Hey Ms. Leslie Ann, I have the married couple in my name!"(meaning 'ai') :) Here's my vowel people for 'ai' and 'ay'
