Wow… it’s been a long time since I’ve written. I do miss it, but we’ve gone through a move, are facing more moves in the near future, had a litter of puppies, and have been teaching a 7 year old, 5 1/2 year old, and a 4 year old to read at the same time! Isn’t it incredible how different kids are “ready” at different times? I was intending to teach the two older kids but the little guy just jumped right in and started learning by observation, surprising me one day by sounding out three letter words! So, I added him to the syllabus!
I did want to hop on and post these printables I created that we have found totally useful and great addition to any reading curriculum. I currently use Phonics Pathways for teaching reading, but I am known to supplement, go off curriculum and just wing it based on how my kid responds to the “norm”. This is one of the things I developed to supplement and enrich the program 🙂 I hope you find it useful as well. Please feel free to download each set & use in your own homeschool or school classroom.
Download 1 – Word Family Pages (Download Here: Word Families Binder Pages)
This set is 71 Pages total and is designed to fit in a binder for use in daily reading drills. I have my children read as much as they are able … one child does half a full page, the other usually does the whole page. They are in alphabetical order in the pdf, but I ordered them based on how I thought the child would best learn. Feel free to order them to your particular style.
Download 2 – Word Family Highlighting Worksheets
This set is all the word family pages condensed into 67 pages for the whole sheet style, and 34 pages for the half sheet style. Every once in awhile I will have my kids take a sheet and highlight the word family part of the word. This helps their brain begin to understand parts of words better the more practice they get. I like to print it in the half sheet style to save paper. I have included both styles for you to choose from.

I hope you enjoy these printables and find them useful in your school 🙂 I also have sight words and word families flash cards if there is interest. Please comment if you’d like me to throw those up here sooner rather than later 😛
Thanks for stopping by.
