Word Families... My kids favorites
















I have been SO happy with these word family activities, but more importantly, this week my kids said, "Yes! I love these!" when I passed them out. This is my fifth week, so 5th word family and the time and work was so worth it. Each day I read a book (from my class library) that has the word family in the title and we read through the words I've hung on my mini board. Monday, we do the page that uses 12 crayons to color in the boxes...we do this together as a class... then they flip it over and use a transparent spinner to partner play the game that I've copied on the back side.
Tuesday, we do the word search (I told the kids to use 12 different crayons on this page too... it makes it more fun ;) .


Wednesday, we write the 6 sentences.


Thursday we complete the cut and make words page and


Friday take the word family quiz.


I'd love to hear how you have used these pages in your classroom.


I have a few sets for free on Tpt... if you don't want to purchase others for $1... make your own... they are working and helping all readers.


Yesterday as we were taking the quiz (and I was walking around the room) I passed a little boy that I'm doing interventions on for resource testing and he was chunking the words sk...ill.................. sk...ill and he did really well. Sometime things are best when they're simple ;)

You make great games! Thanks for sharing.
I think there is a mistake on the last page you posted a picture of. The kids are practicing -ill words but in the directions you wrote "Arrange them to make ay words."
