Word Families - ale, ame, ay

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.
