Word Families: Proven Method for Teaching Reading
Why Teach Word Families?
Word Families Throughout the Week
During our morning meeting, we take out our small whiteboards and markers and practice recording our words. Sometimes they sit with a partner and quiz each other and sometimes I will give them words to record. This is a quick assessment for me to check how they are doing. This could also be a part of your small group time.We work more on word meaning. We have a few activities that we rotate through each week to keep things interesting. For instance, we complete our fill-in sheets for morning work where we have to pick the correct word to fit in an empty space. We also create read, draw, and color books where we have to read a sentence, dray its meaning, and color the picture.
