A set of 20 word family activity sheets for students to complete.
Use this teaching resource when studying word families 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.
Slip the cards in a dry erase pocket and have students complete them with a dry-erase marker, then wipe clean. These activity sheets work great when working with your guided reading groups or as a reading center activity.
