These are great pages to work on the concept of word families and rhyming. Use these seperately as worksheets or put them together as a book.
In this book there is a page of beginning sounds that you run on colored paper, students keep these letters in their desk for the duration of the unit. Each day, the students cut the bottom of the word family page off to cut out the word family chunks. Using the beginning sound letters and the word family chunk they build words. We build it, read it, write it searching for real words rather than nonsense words. There are 3 pages per short vowel and 2 word families on each page giving you a total of 30 word families!

Please note - these are the same word families in my other short vowel word family phonics book, this is just a more hands-on version.
