This Word Family Booklet is the easiest activity to make and gives those kiddos a nice opportunity to practice reading three letter words. On today’s post I am going to give you the instructions how to make these great little word family booklets as well as give you a FREE list of word families!
- Construction paper
- Index cards
- Black marker
How to Make It:
Using the construction paper, cut out 2X2” squares. You will probably want to get started with around 8-10 squares to start.
On each index card write out the word family. (See the list of 20 word families below)
On the 2X2” squares, write the beginning sound letter.
Stack the 2X2” squares with the letters written on them together to make a booklet. Staple the squares onto the index card. VOILA – the finished product!
You can now get started, but…
If your child is a little unsure of all the letters and sounds, then they might not be too successful with this activity. To be able to sound out words well, your child must be very fluent with the sounds of each letter. If your child doesn’t have this skill yet, then you will need to back up and fill in the missing gaps before you read the little word family booklets. If you need a great Beginning Consonant Reading Program, check out The PRIDE Reading Program.
Here is a list of word families you can use so that you can create a total of 20 Word Family Booklets!
