Colin is working on his first sets of word families. YAY!!! We have been using Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschooling for his reading (he is in the McGuffey Primer level right now). He seems to be doing well but I think he needs some extra practice, so I came up with a few ideas. 😉
First I made up some simple flashcards.
Then I made a memory game. He LOVES this!!!!
Then I made some of those sliding thingies. 😉
I think I may redo those…. It was 6 am and I was a little tired. LOL
This was his favorite. I wrote some of his words in white crayon on white construction paper and had him use his water colors. As soon as he found a word I had him read it to me.
These activities seem to be helping him tremendously!!!
Here are a few links to other word family/sight word activities and printables.
