Word Families



Word Family Animals inspired by a mailbox magazine idea

Word Family Animals Enrichment to differentiate the learning task

Word Family Ice Cream Cones (differentiated by word family choices)
Word Family Eggs to use with the Egg Recording Sheet Below

When I first returned to work we started learning about word families.  I did some research, discussed ideas with a very good friend of mine, and with a little inspiration from the mailbox magazines came up with a few fun and challenging word family learning tasks.  The animals came from a mailbox magazine, the ice cream cones were of my own creation, and the Easter Egg Word Families Recording Sheet came from KMY at littlemissglamourgoestokindergarten.blogspot.com.  To enrich the work products, my students who needed to be challenged were asked to create their own word families.  My average kinders were given words and word families to sort.  On the egg recording sheet, all students were given word family eggs; however, the word families practiced varied with the individual student needs.  All of the eggs were in a basket together so the children didn't realize who was working on which word family.
