Word Families

I saw this super cute idea for reinforcing word families in the Lakeshore catalog, but wanted to adapt it to meet my students' needs. We've been working on short a words and they were having a tough time differentiating between "an" and "at" while reading. So I made this really fun word family activity! It took me a long time, but totally worth it!




I had my parent helper run this center today so that my kids were clear on what to do, but they can totally do this as an independent center now! I also would change some things for the next time I do this....Even though I put all the picture and letter cut outs in separate containers, they still somehow managed to get all jumbled together! I would definitely make each set on different colored paper next time, for my own sanity!

Okay, so bear with me as I figure out how to make a google document so you can download it! Let's hope this works!
