This year long unit allows students to make the part-part-whole connection from number bonds in math to words in reading. The students use the word parts (word families) to make whole words.
Click on the preview to learn more about using word bonds with your students. My students love word bonds and building words. They see part-part-whole relationships everywhere with number and word bonds! The connections are amazing!
After using this during small group instruction, students can work with word bonds during centers.
This product includes:
* An example lesson
* Word part circles (word families) for long and short vowels, vowel pairs, r controlled vowels, consonants and blends
* Word bond word mats
* Word lists for teacher use of words to build in each word family
I hope you enjoy using word bonds with your students as much as I have. The part-part-whole relationship bug will hit your classroom and students! You will be seeing the relationship everywhere!
