This set contains the vowel team word families -ail, -ay, -eat, -eep, and -oat.
Word family poems contain word family and sight word vocabulary children can read with activities for your poetry center, independent word family center or group work. Poems are a great way to introduce early readers and writers to word family and sight word vocabulary. By reading and chanting poems, students build their fluency skills, while tackling new spelling patterns.
What makes word family poems so important as part of your literacy work is that they combine word work with reading comprehension. These are poems that beginning readers can access, and that more advanced readers can work with independently to practice visualization techniques.
Best of all, the children enjoy the activities that make learning reading fun!
There are 10 different activities for each word family poem in this kit. They are suited to students at different levels, so you can differentiate your literacy program. For each word family, you get a mini poster (8.5” x 11”) of the poem plus ten activities for your poetry center including: visualization activities, fill in the blanks, mixed up words, alphabetizing, circle and write, and word practice.
