Learning word families sometimes called chunks or phonograms can help emergent readers begin to understand our complicated language by providing some predictable patterns within words. When learning to read, patterns are important. Children who recognize the patterns will have an easier job decoding words.
Once children learn the most common word families they will be able to decode over 500 words. This will put an emerging reader well on their way of mastering the entire decoding process.
This pack has 47 word family pages for your students to complete. This is a great tool to use the entire year or when studying different vowel patterns. However you decide to use these sheets your students will begin to learn the different phonograms and then they will more easily be able to decode longer words too.
Simple to use, simply copy, attach the cover and you are done. Let the learning begin!
