Teaching word families is a great way to help emergent readers blend and make simple words!
A word family is a group of words with the same letter pattern. For example, man, tan, can, fan and pan are all part of the ‘an’ word family since the last two letters are the same. Words belonging to the same family are also rhyming words.
Word family activities are fun for children and help understand word structures.
I have designed this word family activities for short vowel a booklet to support phonics and reading in kindergarten.
‘ag’ words on the bAG
‘an’ words in the pAN
‘at’ words on the cAT etc.
IT will be a good writing practice for our little writers.
There are four sheets divided into two parts. Cut along the vertical dotted line in the middle of every worksheet. The sheets have been numbered from 1-8. place them in numerical order and staple them. Your booklet is now ready.
I hope you find this resource useful.
