I print all the word families and blends. I then trim and glue on top of white construction paper leaving the bottom half blank. I have them laminated so the students and I can write the word we learn on the poster interactively. After studying a word family or blend (two a week) I hang the poster along the back wall above my word wall. Each quarter I take them down, wipe them clean, and store them for the next year. I have pictures of these posters in my classroom on my blog.
