Students can create word family books independently or after participating in a word family sort on ReadWriteThink. http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/interactives/wordfamily/
Choose the word family you want them to use (or let them choose their own). There are 20 different word families from which to choose. At the end of the packet, there are blank ice cream cone templates. Students write each word family word on a page to create a word family book.
