This word family word building game helps students practice building words using onset and rime while having fun using strategy to win a game. This activity makes a great word work activity for Daily 5 or centers. Two students play using different colors of dry erase markers, but you can print many boards so the entire class can play and trade boards. I've even had students do this activity by themselves. As students learn new spelling patterns, you can print off new boards and lists, so the activity can be used all year.
You'll need dry erase markers and plastic sleeves. I use page protectors from the dollar store.
These boards have just enough color to be attractive, but won't use up all the ink in your printer!
If you like this sample, the full set with 66 word families, including short and long vowels and vowel digraphs are available in my store for only $2.
