Fill up this adorable “word family tree” with words containing a must-know phonogram. This engaging reproducible activity page provides repeated practice in building words containing a target word family. Research shows that recognizing and using phonograms helps children develop phonemic awareness of rhyming words and improves decoding and spelling skills. Perfect for in-class use or homework!
Word Family Memory: To make game cards for this familiar game, simply write word family words on a supply of apple cutouts (one word per card). Check that each word belongs to a pair. Then invite children to use the cards to play Memory. Each time children find a pair of words that belong to the same word family, they keep the match.
