Looking for some short a word family activities? Here are a few I like to use with my students for the –ad, -am, -an, -ap, and –at word families.
There are house frames labeled with the word family name on the mailbox. Simply copy the blacklines and pass them out. Students must read the word family name and make a list of words in that family on their house. The number of words listed on the house is up to you. This works well for differentiation. You can also choose to use just one word family at a time or multiples as a review. Students then decorate them and cut them out. Put them together on a bulletin board or wall to create a word family town.
Also included is Read and Write the Room activities for each of the short a word families. There are two different sets of cards. One set has just the picture the other set has just the word. This allows you to differentiate based on which set you use. Both sets of cards come in color or printer-friendly blacklines. A student record sheet is also included for writing the words as they find them. At the bottom of the printable is a place for students to choose one of the words to write in a sentence.
You can also choose to use both sets of Read and Write the Room cards to make a matching activity to use in small groups or as a center activity.
I hope this 60 page product helps to make life a little easier for you and your students.
