Product Description
Working with word families is an effective way to practice and reinforce spelling patterns and phonics rules. Use them to draw attention to the beginning sounds in emergent readers, and to introduce and reinforce spelling patterns, blends, vowel pairs, and silent letters in more challenging words.

This comprehensive collection includes 60 different word families organized in order of difficulty. It covers simple CVC words, then adds digraphs, CVCe words, along with more complex blends, vowel pairs and silent letters. They can be used as literacy centers each week increasing in difficulty, or use several levels at once to differentiate.
These are also perfect for warm up activities for guided reading small group lessons, targeting or reviewing spelling patterns of your choice.


1. Use the spinner to choose one of the words in the family. I use a paper clip, but you can also attach plastic spinners to laminated pages to last longer.
2. Find the word on the graph, and practice spelling the word in the correct column (use a dry erase marker if these are laminated or used in page protectors!) Continue to create a graph.
3. When one word fills the column and "wins", students then complete the questions comparing the graphs.
4. Early finishers: create a pattern in the frame with colors, shapes or words. Or you can assign a specific sort of pattern for students to complete each day. (ie: with colors, shapes, letters, numbers, skip counting, etc)
Students identify and describe the core of the pattern.
