Let’s make some words! Learning to make new words with word families is a very important skill and one that is extremely satisfying to the little learner. After introducing word families, I love using this hands-on, simple activity in my classroom because it can be used so many different ways. Fun ways to use this activity are:
- enlarge the pages, place the page on a cookie sheet, and then give the kids magnets.
- give the kids rubber stamps with letters on them.
- place the pages into plastic page protectors and have the kids write the letters with dry erase markers.
You can’t believe all the words they come up with. Sometimes, they make words that aren’t really words or aren’t spelled correctly. Then, that will give you a chance to teach about some of the crazy rules we have in the English language.
After using all the word families with my kids, they were well on their way to become word masters.
