Phonics Family Flower!

I decided to share another form I’ve used with my girls before. This is more at the kindergarten level, to work on “word families”.

It’s VERY simple, but somehow, doing the word family in a flower seems to make it more fun for the kids. Specially if you let them use a color pencil (maybe even a crayon) to write!

You give the child one of the forms and will in the middle of the flower with whatever family you want to work on. The child then has to write a letter (or letters) that when added to the “family ending” would make a word.

For example, when we worked on the “AT” family. I would write “AT” in the middle of the flower. The girls could add:

B   for B-AT,  C for C-AT, M for M-AT… etc.,  etc., etc.   I made 6 petals on the flower, and in some cases the flowers have more than 6 (basic…simple 3-4 letter words) in the family… you can have the child write it on the side…along the grass…or draw another flower on the back with the extra petals! You can use this beyond just basic simple families too! There are lots of uses for the flower form. How creative can YOU get? :-)
