Long Vowel Logic Tile Cards are a fun, hands-on way for students to learn and practice reading/spelling long vowel words! These tile cards will challenge students by having them use their logic and spelling skills to complete a variety of long vowel words, using only five vowel letter tiles. Students have to manipulate the vowel tiles on each card, until they get five correct long vowel words. Some cards can have words where multiple vowels fit in one word (i.e. r ____ de could be “ride” or “rode”), so students will be challenged to use their problem solving skills to figure out which letter belongs in a particular box.
Students place the vowel letter tiles on the “vowel place mat” at the bottom of each tile card before beginning. This is a great time to reinforce and practice the sound each letter makes as a long vowel. This center can also be done with a partner, where students take turns trying to complete the five words on the tile card together.
Students are able to see their success in working through these tile cards, as they keep track using their own Tile Card Tracker (also included in this file). Once a tile card is completed and checked by the teacher, students get a “star” on their Tile Card Tracker and they are allowed to choose another card to complete.
Logic Tile Cards make a great center activity, either for small group, or independent student practice. Directions are included with each set, so parent volunteers can easily run a tile card center too. Once students get the hang of how to complete a tile card, this becomes a fun and easy go-to center for students!

Long Vowel Tile Cards were created for first graders learning to read. However, these tile cards can easily be adapted for advanced kindergartners or second graders needing extra reading support (especially in the beginning of the year for second graders). There is also a Long Vowel (with pictures) Logic Tile Card Set, which is helpful for English Language Learners, or students just needing a little extra support.
Thanks so much and happy “Tile Time!”
