These pages can be run separately or as a book. They focus on short vowel word families that change to long vowel families by adding the magic e.
All of the Word Family pages look like the one pictured, there are 5 per vowel (only 4 for U). These are the most common families that transfer from a short vowel to a long vowel by adding the magic e. Families included are:
ad/ade, am/ame, ag/age, at/ate, ap/ape
in/ine, im/ime, it/ite, ip/ipe, id/ide
ob/obe, od/ode, on/one, op/ope, ot/ote
ub/ube, ud/ude, un/une, ut/ute
E is not included due to the lack of e magic e words.
Letter tiles are included to use with your students to build words. You have the option to run the letter tiles and pass them out all at once or there are also sheets that let you run the families or blends you are working on to pass out the letter tiles as you reach them. Letter tiles for word building are:
Short Vowel word families (5 per vowel)
Magic e's to change the short vowels to long vowels
Consonants for beginning sounds.
I am using this book as an intervention for some of our students that have not mastered the concept of blends. I needed a way to work on blends, but to also move them along to the long vowel concept.
Using the letter tiles to build words then add a magic e and record them will help reach many of our struggling learners.
I hope you find this useful. Remember, I only add things to my store that I am using in my own classroom. All of my items have been created for a reason and have been or are being used by first graders. Feel free to let me know your feedback :o)
