Kids always love making paper chains! Use these 23 sheets to reinforce short vowel families/rhymes. There are 4-6 families for each of the 5 vowels. A small sampling: ot, in, ag, ed, um. Every single word has a picture clue next to it. Students write the initial letter in each blank. And here and there a blend is needed, as in clap, but for the most part 3 letter, one syllable words are in each family. See Instruction Sheet in the Preview. Please contact me with any technical issues, suggestions or questions! Long vowel family chains are also available in my store!
