Working with word families is an effective way to get your students reading. It also helps them learn to decode longer words. This set includes 31 colorful, hands on, wipe off mats for your students to practice their long vowel family skills.
Each mat has a picture that matches with the particular word family. They can be used in your word work and literacy centers as well as your guided groups. Copy them on card stock, laminate and cut out the shape, then provide your students with dry erase markers to write on and wipe off the sheets. They can also be copied and used as worksheets in your centers. After making their words, students can also write sentences or even draw pictures for the words they made.
These are the included word families:
ake, ay, ame, ail, ape, ate, ale, ain, eat, eep, eet, ean, eak, ike, ice, ide, ime, ite, ine, ight, ive, ile, one, oke, oat, ope, ose, ule, ute, ube, une
