My students showed difficulty thinking up word family words even though they were able to read them pretty well. This game has helped them to think with ease. Hope that your students can practice while having fun!
The idea is not original. It has been around for awhile. My goal for this year is using more Smartboard in my Kinder class. This song is very popular in my classroom every year. I would ask a student to choose the letter to place on the first blank
When I was introducing Fact Family, some students could not grasp it. I did this practice in a small group, and they were able to understand what and how Fact Family works. Hope that you can use this in your classroom.
