“The–at and –an Word Families” activity package is for K – 1st and struggling 2nd graders. These are minimal preparation printables, small group, and center activities designed to enhance or supplement your lesson on CVC word families –at and -an. This is also a simple way for a teacher to work with a small group to help them learn medial vowel sounds, introduce them to vowels, or support students who are struggling to understand word families. Included are 28 blending and segmenting mats with six –at family mats with three-words, six –an family mats with three-words, nine –at and –an families with four-words and seven –at and –an families up to six word mats. Please note that some words are made-up or nonsense words. There are five small group –at and –an picture and word sorting sets: with black-line masters included for extra practice. There are three different blank segmenting mats for practice with letter tiles. Finally, there is a CVC cut-n-paste activity to practice making words from –at , -an, and –at & -an word families.
