Students study the ai=/A/ grapheme by reading "James and the Good Day" with a partner and discussing it. Next, they recite a tongue twister focusing on the ai=/A/ correspondence. They make words using their letterboxes and letters before writing both the ai and a_e correspondences on a paper to which they add pictures representing them. As an assessment, they identify psuedo-words on flashcards.
