This set of word family worksheets is designed to give children more practice with identifying and reading patterns in words. Word families are groups of words that follow a similar pattern. Learning with word families helps your students easily identify patterns in words and build confidence in their reading and writing.
With the word family balloons, students will read the words on each balloon and decide if the words are real or nonsense words. Students will color the real words red and the nonsense words blue.
Word Families included:
-ab, -ad, -ag, -am, -an, -ap, -at, -ed, -en, -et, -id, -ig, -in, -ip, -it, -og, -op, -ot, -ug, -ut, -ake, -ale, -ame, -ate, -ave, -ide, -ine, -ive, -ole, -one, -ore, -ack, -all, -ang, -ank, -ash, -ell, -ent, -est, -ick, -ill, -ing, -ock, -orn, -uck, -ump, -unk, -ail, -ain, -eat, -eel, -eep, -oil, -ook, -oom
: The pages are repetitive in appearance and format. All of the pages are the same - only the words change. (See thumbnails above.) This works really well for early learners, English language learners, and learners with special needs.
This resource is part of the Word Family Worksheets Bundle. The bundle includes six sets of worksheets. Learn more about why repeated exposure and practice with everything is necessary for all students to understand and master skills in this blog post.
