Working With Word Families
Word families provide emerging readers predictable patterns for reading and spelling. For example, if a student learns to read and spell the word, “bug,” from the -ug family, that same student can quickly learn to read and spell the words, “pug,” “mug,” “rug,” and “dug,” etc. by simply changing the beginning sound of the word. Working with word families can quickly increase the amount of words your emerging readers can read and spell as well as build confidence in those skills.
At File Folder Heaven we have just added many new activities for working with word families.
For each word family covered, we have created one file folder game and one cookie sheet activity to provide practice opportunities for working with that word family.
Students practice reading and matching word family words in our file folder games.
Students practice reading and spelling word family words in our cookie sheet activities.
