Word Family Freebie

Today I am posting a freebie in honor of my one year anniversary blogging.

I initially set out just to share my passion for teaching and to give back to the many out there that have helped me along the way.  I have really enjoyed it.  This process has taught me so much about the web and I am proud that I taught myself all I have accomplished here.  Thanks to the many who have answered questions and continue to inspire me to be and to do better.

Word families are always fun in Kindergarten.  This year, we have been making houses.  The name of the word family it at the top... and the "windows" become illustrated members of the family.  My class loves making them.  Beyond making them, I wanted them be successful at remembering them and reading them.

So I created a book.  Click here to grab your own copy. It is intended to be copied in a 2-sided format.  Add as many extra pages as you see fit.

As learn a new word "family", we add to the book.  My class loves it.  Be sure to add the page numbers as you go.  Each student keeps it in his reading box. 

Hope you like.  Please let me know what you think.


  1. I am happy that you found something to help that. I love word families, too.
