These word family cards are made for students to practice building and reading word families. By using onset and rhyme students will begin to see patterns and chunks in words that they know. Teachers can choose which specific skills they'd like students to practice from CVC to glued sounds. There are also VCE cards and vowel teams.
You just need popsicle sticks to write the beginning sounds on. Typically I will have students practice with single consonant beginning sounds and then incorporate digraph and blend beginnings as they are gaining mastery.
These cards can be used as review, as a literacy center, word work during guided reading, or a game.
