I like to have some sort of theme, when we work on a word family.

It not only grabs my students’ attention, but makes the activities a bit more fun, and my kiddos seem to catch on more quickly, retaining the information better because of the graphic.

With that in mind, I designed the UG word family packet, with a mug theme, which is perfect for our winter lessons.

Since most mugs are also a 3D cylinder shape, I’ve incorporated this into the lesson, so that you can add a bit of math with literacy.

The packet includes

* 2 Craftivities
* 5 worksheets
* A set of 6, pocket-chart sentence cards
* 3 Posters, plus
* 9, three-piece UG puzzles

Use the activities as a whole group activity, independent center, games, or something for early finishers, homework or your sub folder.

After we finish our lessons, as a special treat, I make hot chocolate, while my kiddos are out at recess. Everyone also gets 5 mini marshmallows.

You can use this treat, as an incentive and have your kiddos earn the letters to spell the word chocolate.

I simply write the letters on the board. Once they’ve spelled chocolate, they’ve earned a cup of cocoa.

I’m Diane, from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing the ug family of words, with a mug full of fun.
