This interactive SMART Board lesson is based on Making Words by Patricia Cunningham and Dorothy Hall. In the first step, students make words from smallest to largest, in step two, students sort words based on common words families, and in step three, students apply the skills they learned to read and spell new words.
This lesson focuses on the -ain word family, but includes many other word families as well.
