FREE! Gingerbread "-ig" Word Family is GREAT to use as a center or as practice with a small group or individual students. This activity is part of a set of 4 different short 'i' word families that help children with decoding, phonics and sight words. Simply reproduce the page, laminate if desired, and cut the pieces apart. Mix the word cards and lay all the pieces out. Have the student(s) read each word card and match it to its '-ig family'. In this set, there are 4 "-ig" word cards, 2 cards that do not belong, plus children can decode the 2 additional words printed right on the mat! An easy to read directions card is provided so students can word independently. Step by step assembly instructions for teacher/parent are also included.
