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 Families on the Move: Call out action words that belong to different word families. For instance, you might call out jump, run, throw, hop, slide, swim, clap, or stand. After saying each word, have children perform the action. Then ask them to name other words belonging to the same word family.
