At this center, students can sort words in the -an, -at, -it, and -ig word families. There are six balloon word cards for each of the word families. There are also 4 clip art animals. Each is labeled with one of the word families.
I placed all the balloons in a small bowl at the center. I cut the animals out and mounted them on large construction paper and drew 6 strings for the students to know where to place the matching word family balloons.
A great way to practice reading a sorting cvc and ccvc words.
