My small reading groups love this card game that helps teach word families!
Each card is a good size (¼ of a sheet of paper) with a large font so that they are easy for students to see at a reading table.
The students really enjoy the game of reading and finding words with the same short vowel sound and collecting cards as they try to be the winner with the most cards at the end of the game.
Even when not playing the game, I have found the cards to be extremely helpful as flash cards. Students are eager to have a chance to read each card as I hold it up for them and keep it (temporarily) if they read it correctly.
These cards are perfect for a parent or other volunteer to use when helping a one or a few students practice reading word families.
(If you like this game, I have posted a set of all 7 of my word family games in one file … $12 for 7 games, so you get one game for free.)
