We all know that teaching our emergent readers word families helps them more easily decode words, so why not give them extra practice in a fun, hands-on way?
There are 5 Christmas themed centers. Each center has 4 word families that they will sort for a total of 20 word families.
Center 1: og, et, un, ap
Center 2: at, ed, ip, ot
Center 3: ad, it, ub, en
Center 4: ut, ag, ig, ob
Center 5: an, in, op, ug
*There are 60 words total to be sorted and 4 of those words are blends.*
Each center includes a larger set of the pictures they will be sorting so you can go over all of the words/pictures before letting them work independently.
Each center also includes 3 differentiated recording sheets:
-Students will write the beginning sound.
-Students will match the word to the picture.
-Students will write each word and then think of an additional word in the word family.
