Word Families help children learn "chunks" that are needed for decoding strategies. I use these posters in my classroom to introduce a new word family in a whole group setting. Then once kids have come up with words in that family, I PASS THE PEN!! This gives an opportunity for simple shared writing in the class. I laminated these and hang them up for display, so that we can refer back to them if we need a word in our writing. You can also use them to bind into a class book for the writing center or writing stations.
Word Families Included:
all, am, an, ar, at, aw, ay, ell, en, in, ing, ip, it, ock, ook, oon, op, ot, ug, un
