Thank you for purchasing Stamp-a-Word Family. This word family worksheet is a fun and engaging way to help emerging readers master “chunks” of sounds.. This is a critical skill not only for beginning readers but also for beginning spellers!
I encourage students to use decoding skills to read the sentence listening for the targeted word family and circle. Students then stamp the word family to build each word. I ask the kiddos to decode the new word and check to see if it matched the picture (reading comprehension). When students finish all six words, they can choose their two favorite words and write three times each on the provided lines.
Some of my kiddos are ready to write independently. I ask these students to choose their favorite word on the page and use it in a sentence. Encourage proper letter formation and self-editing (capital, spaces, punctuation, and syntax)
Rhyming: This is a fun way to also work on rhyming and build silly rhyming sentences.
