Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 9 pages | Years: F - 1

A set of 36 sorting cards to reinforce word families and rhyming with your students.

Use this teaching resource when studying word families and rhyming in your classroom.

Word families are groups of words that share a common pattern or group of letters. For example, the words cat, hat, mat, sat and rat are all part of the -at family because they all share the letters ‘at’. When learning to read, patterns are important and make it easier when sounding out words.

This set of sorting cards include the following word families:

  • -ap
  • -ip
  • -an
  • -in.

Simply print, cut out and laminate the cards for durability. They can be used in a variety of whole group, small group and individual phonics activities.
