I created these word family units because I felt my students needed a systematic way to learn to blend. These sheets have helped build their confidence as they have become better readers. In fact, my current Kindergarteners are blending better than any other group I have taught. I have also shared these with the other 14 Kindergarten classes in my school, and every teacher feels they have helped their students!
Day 1 allows students to read the words and match them to a picture. Day 2 has students identify the picture and write the beginning sound. Day 3 has students identify the picture and write the word correctly.
I have shared these units with Special Education Teacher who works with my students with special needs. She feels these pages help her students because they are predictable and systematic.
If you have a smart board, please search for the Power Point that goes with this unit. It is titled "The __at Word Family!" I am learning how to upload to this website, and I don't know how to join the power point with the unit. It will be a free one, too!
