This Word Family Poem set is a resource to help students focus on various word families and support sight word reading. Students read the poem and then trace the word family words. Once they have traced the words they write the words on the lines and draw a picture to go with the poem.
This set includes 16 different word family poems. The poems focus on the “at, am, ab, en, ig, og, ox, up, ug, uck, ock, ish, ake, ale, ice, and ole” word families. While the goal is to focus on word families, the number of words and the variety for each poem is a bit limited. This is due to space and also in that the poems need to make sense. The variety of words within the same word family is encouraged as part of the extension activities.
