First, cut apart puzzles pieces and then laminate. Place each puzzle in a Ziploc bag. The student will put the puzzles together (visual spatial skills), read the CVC word family words. Then I have my students write the words in their journal or on a dry erase board. I differentiate this activity by having higher level students write words that go with the word family or use the words in sentences.
Included word families: ad, am, an, ap, ar, at, aw, ay, ed, en, et, ig, in, ip, it, og, op, ot, ug, and um.
