Vowel Teams Bingo AI

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 12 pages | Grades: 1 - 2

Practice decoding words that use the AI vowel team convention with this BINGO game for up to 20 players.

Listen to & Identify AI Vowel Team Words

Use this resource in your reading center, as a guided reading activity, or a whole class exercise (see below) to practice decoding the long “a” phoneme represented in AI vowel team words.

To play, students listen to the calling card and cover the picture of the AI word if it appears on their BINGO board. 

The AI vowel team words your students will hear and identify in this game are: 

  • mailbox
  • chair
  • nail
  • pail
  • snail
  • train
  • mail
  • rain
  • rainbow
  • chain
  • paint
  • brain

Scaffolding + Extension Tips 

Challenge students who already understand the concept to put the cards in alphabetical order, thinking logically about how each letter in the word contributes to its ordering in a list. 

Support students who need help understanding the concepts by using a vowel phonemes poster or an anchor chart as a visual reference.

More Ways to Practice Using the AI Vowel Team 

Use this resource as independent practice for fast finishers, and full-class learning opportunities like scoot activities, lesson reviews, formative assessments, and more.

Match Me If You Can

In your guided reading group, give each student 3 cards that only they can see. Using a gameboard, go through each image one at a time and say the word as a group. The student who has the word card lays it down face up. The first person to have all their cards face up wins.

Swat! 

During small group instruction, create a grid of cards on top of a table and give each student a fly swatter. Read the word on one of the cards. The first student to swat the word card correctly sets the card aside in their own pile to keep score. The student with the most cards wins. 

Upcycle into Playing Cards

Print 2 sets of calling cards for students to play card games like Match It, Go Fish, or Snap.

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on cardstock for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.
