I use these in my classroom for a word work center during Daily 5. After printing them on cardstock I laminate and cut out each word family card, and then hole punch the corner and attach the "slide" with a string. The students then use the slide on each of the beginning sounds to create words. The expectation is that the students are reading each word and then I also usually have them record the words that they create on a seperate sheet of paper. These are awesome to use during small group and with individual students during intervention as well!
