Word Families

This is one section of a Phonics Kit that you can create. Many of the resources are provided for personal or classroom use. See the full post for more resources! Learn more about the Phonics Toolkit and get your copy today!

Word families are words that have the same endings, and therefore rhyme.

WATCH word families by Little Fox or word families ChorsiMedia (many short, some others)

WordFamilyCards

Word Family Cards are modified from margedteachingposters for easier printing. (22 cards, 6 pages) Cut the end off of an envelope and slide the clue picture out. Students can make as many words with the same ending as they can think of, then slide the words out to see if they thought of all of them.

The Word Family Picture sorts from flyingintolearning.com can be used to provide pictures with clues. I like to use these with the Word Family Treasure game below.

PLAY

Please note that many online games require Flash and may not work well on some tablets and smartphones. It can be helpful to download the Mozilla Firefox browser.

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
