Teach the phonemic awareness skill of rhyming and substitution of the first sound while singing this fun song. These word families will help your students read over 70 words.
Look for the books that go along with "Five Word Families" in Kathy Griffin's TPT store. Use the books in guided reading, teaching strategies, in the listening center, word wall searches, and as homework as a home-school connection.
