This set of word family cards has 6 word families with 5 cards in each. All of the words are long vowel sound words with the "silent e." Two words in each set have blends or digraphs. The following word families are covered: -ape, -ame, -ide, -ime, -ope & -ose. It also comes with a blank set of cards so you can add your own words!
I created this set to use in my classroom. I usually have a set of cards with magnets attached. I put them on my filing cabinet and mix them up every morning. During center time, someone just can't resist sorting them back!
You can also use these during guided reading when presenting a new word family. Additionally, they can be cut apart, separating the onset and rime to make word puzzles. Add some magnetic letters and have students spell the words. There are many possibilities!
