These interactive books focus on word families as well as onset and rime and are a perfect addition to your class study of word families. 33 WORD FAMILIY BOOKS INCLUDED. Learners interact with every page as they listen find matching picture to Velcro or glue to the page.
Onset and Rime are components of phonological awareness. The "onset" is the initial phonological unit of any word (e.g. c in cat) and the term "rime" refers to the string of letters that follow, usually a vowel and final consonants (e.g. at in cat). Similar to teaching beginning readers about rhyme, teaching children about onset and rime helps them recognize common chunks (word families) within words. This can help students decode new words when reading and spell words when writing.
Onsets and Rimes help children learn about word families, which can lay the foundation for future spelling strategies
Teaching children to attend to onset and rime will have a positive effect on their literacy skills
Learning these components of phonological awareness is strongly predictive of reading and spelling acquisition
Included are both colored and black and white versions of each book. Laminate the colored versions and students use them in a literacy center or during small group instruction. The black and white version can be printed as cut and paste activity sheets.

PREPARATION AND ASSEMBLY:
Print all pages of each book you will be using on cardstock and laminate for durability. OR Print all pages on regular paper if book is to be placed in the student’s notebook and taken home.
Trim all pages of each book ….. Cut around outside of each page so they are all the same size.
Cut all pages, EXCEPT THE LAST PAGE, of each book in half along black line.
Do not cut apart the last page of each book (page 13, 22, 31, 40, 49, 58, 67, 76, 85, 94, 103, 112, 121,130,139,148,157,166,175, 184,193,202, etc………of this packet). Leave the page whole….. This will be used for your interactive pieces.
Punch holes over the circles in the left gray areas of each page and use notebook rings ( or yarn) to bind the book together. If you bind the pages of the book with notebook rings, you can switch up the pages so students do not memorize the answers.
Also put Velcro in each box on the last page of each book.
No Velcro will be put on these pages if students are putting the book in their notebooks or if they are taking it home.
Cut apart all pictures/letters on the picture page of each book and place Velcro on the back of each picture. Place these pictures/letters on the empty boxes on the last page. OR If student is putting the book in their notebook and taking them home, just place pictures/letters on top of squares so students can see all their choices to pick from and glue into their books.
Place Velcro pieces on the of each blank frame box on each page. No Velcro is needed if students are putting this in their notebooks or taking it home. Students can glue pictures in place instead.
Directions for use:
As each page is read by the student, he/she should find the correct picture or beginning letter on last page and attach it to the empty square.
After each picture/letter has been placed in the book, have students read the words once again.
