Use these word family caterpillars as a class, in a center and individually! Here are a few ways to use this product:
You can use them to introduce a word family by passing out pieces of the caterpillar to students and having them help you put the caterpillar together. Once you have made the caterpillar you can post it somewhere in your classroom (I put all of mine on our 'Word Family Tree') so students can see them.
You can place a few caterpillars at a center once you have taught those word families and have students sort the caterpillar pieces into the correct word families. Students can then use a whiteboard or piece of paper to record the words they sorted or they can write sentences using the words.
You can print off a caterpillar for each student and use brads to attach the segments. Students can keep the caterpillars at their desks so they can refer back to them throughout the day, or you can send the caterpillars home for your kiddos to practice with their families!
The words on these caterpillars go with my 'Word Family Story Searches' product which you can find here:
Introduce the word family using the caterpillar, have students practice finding words in your word family by using the silly stories in my 'Word Family Story Searches' product, help students create their own word family caterpillar to practice with at home and place segments at a center for them to practice with!
