Start by making four candy corns with three sections each.:
- 1st candy corn - bat, magic, rattle (This is the short a pattern.)
- 2nd - game, scare, shake (This is the long a pattern "a consonant e".)
- 3rd - faint, chain, afraid (This is the long a pattern "ai".)
- 4th - day, play, stray (This is the long a pattern "ay".)
As Amy from One Artsy Mama pointed out in the comments, you could modify this easily for younger readers with rhyming words, beginning sound words, meaning related words, etc.
