Short vowel word families are presented in cut and manipulate letter form. Children are asked to manipulate the letters to create, then recreate, new words. This is an amazing tool for strengthening phonetic skills and demonstrating the structure and pattern of word families. Fun, active and empowering.
Each unit can be adapted to reinforce initial or final consonant sounds for pre-emergent readers. Challenge words are available for some of the word families to encourage advanced readers. Letters can be saved in Ziploc snack bags for future use-or pasted for more permanent word reading.
