I'm back! Did you miss me? I've created a new kit for Teachers Pay Teachers. This past school year I tutored at Blake's school two days a week. Many of the students I tutored needed help seeing word patterns. A great way to do this is teach word families.
I created a word family book for you to use in your class. Each child can create their own word family
book. Each page focuses on one word family (_ack, _ap, _at, _eep, _en, _et, _in, _ing, _ock, _og, _ool,
and _ug). I left the sheets open enough that you could either have the children draw pictures and/or
write the words for the word family.
For each word family you will also find a worksheet to go with each word family.
I created a web map for the _ap, _et, _ing, _ock and _ug families. I gave them a word and picture in the
middle of the web. The children then need to write and illustrate six other words that go into the
For _at, _en, _in and _og you will find a fill in sheet. The children are given a picture that goes with the
word family. They then have a word box with the ending filled in, and they have to provide the
beginning sound. They then have to write the whole word on the line.
The _ack family sheet is Jack and the Beanstalk. The children need to cut out pictures and match them
to the words on the beanstalk.
For _eep they have a word box filled with _eep words. Below they have a set of jeeps to write the
The _ell family sheet is a well. In the top of the well is a word bank. On the bricks at the bottom you will find pictures from the _ell family. The children need to write the word next to the correct picture.
For the _ool family, the children need to cut out the pictures to put into the correct tool box.
Below you will find a few sample pages that are available in the free sample kit. The whole kit which is 30 pages is on sale for $7.
