I created this journal to go with my word family phonics curriculum (Word Family Bonanza, in my TpT store). With younger students I ask them to make lists of the words for each family and illustrate them. Older students write sentences for each word and illustrate them. They like to do “sentence challenges” and see who can come up with the best sentence that includes the most words from one family. The journal includes pages for 9 different word family groups: AT, AN/AD, AP/AG, OG/OP/OT, EG/EN/ET, UG/UN/UT, IG/ILL/IP, R-Controlled Vowels, VCe (ake, ore, ine). It is set up to print as a half-page booklet, leading to 4 pages per piece of paper if printed double sided. I have my students choose and put a wallpaper cover on theirs and they hold up nicely for most of a school year.
