AN Word Family Beginning Sound and Matching Worksheets

Word family work continues to be a part of our homeschool Kindergarten and we have new _an word family printables for you!

Worksheets can be used in many alternative ways, other than the obvious intention.  These 2 worksheets can easily be used with a pencil {the obvious way}. On the first sheet, the child can write in the missing beginning sound and trace the remaining letters.  As you can see below, Ladybug likes to use our Perler Bead letters to work on the beginning sound work!

In the worksheet below, you can simply draw lines to match, which is what she usually prefers. Another fun idea is to use Wiki Stix to be your lines!

Variety makes repetitive tasks more fun and interesting for young kids.  If something gets boring, try a new angle or spin on the same work!

A change has crept upon the land

the warming touch of nature’s hand,

the bleakness slowly ebbs away

and spring time lengthens out the day.

(Once Again by Cheryl Sandberg)

The days are getting longer and the air is getting warmer! Spring is on its way! The season of mud and puddle jumping is upon us! Are your Tots exploring the new life all around? My kids never tire of seeing the birds coming back to the area and the new flowers popping up around the yard! Be sure to link up all your adventures to the Gathering Place for us to see and share!
