This unique word families center contains 2 ocean scene boards with initial consonants and 60 sea creature word family cards. The cards have holes punched in them (using a standard hole punch) which fit over the consonants, creating words. They can be used for 4 different activities:
Single students can use their choice of creatures to fill a board with real words.
Give the student a board and 4 or 5 word family cards. How many words can they form on the board and write down using only those cards?
Randomly choose 12 word family cards. Challenge the student to arrange and rearrange the cards on the vowels so that all 12 consonants and cards are used to form real words.
Use with a group of students. Give each player a board. Place the creature word family cards face down. Students take turns turning over a card. If it can be used with an unused consonant on their picture, they add it. The first student to fill their ocean wins.
