This is a fun word family sorting activity. Perfect for the beginning of March or anytime really. I had a hard time naming this activity. It has 26 pictures representing all 5 short vowel sounds and 6 word families. (at, en, op, ig, ip and un) There are five headers to place the pictures under and a recording sheet if you wish students to write the words. For that matter this could actually be used for a write the room activity too. I have also included a second set with blanks on the hat rim if you want to use them by laminating and using a dry erase marker to write on.
I have used this activity in the past as an Interactive Bulletin Board. I put the 6 word family headers at the top of the bulletin board and call on the students to come up and name the picture and place it under the correct word family. You could also do this in a pocket chart to introduce and then lay the pictures out or hang them up as a center.
