The word families ale, ame and ay demonstrate the long vowel a sound.
I'm torn -- it might be better to introduce the word families ale and ame together (they are both long a vowels with the 'e' at the end to make the long a sound) and then introduce the ay word family in a separate lesson. If your child caught onto set 5 (ate and ake) quite easily, you can introduce ale, ame and ay together as one large lesson. If your child struggled with ate and ake, split this into two lessons: (1) ale and ame; (2) ay.
