You Can Read Word Families ~ at Word Family Printables

I have always wanted to expand You Can Read Sight Words and make a You Can Read Word Families set!  The time has come! I took all of our You Can Read printables and adapted them to focus on one word family at a time. I even added lots of new printables. I selected 4 words from each word family to keep it simple for younger kids who are ready for this. Our first set features _at word family printables.

at Word Family Printables

I have not created all of the sets I plan to create, but have several done and am working quickly on them!  Since I am using one set per week with Ladybug, I have to work fast! I plan to release freebies from each unit on my blog and share some ideas for using the printables. I have already released free _at Q-Tip Painting and _at Word Puzzles. Sometimes you may also find entire sets complete free here within blog posts!  Full sets will also be listed in my Teacher’s Notebook Shop for $1.25 each and when I am all done I will bundle the entire set at a discounted price!

How we are Using These…

We are not using all of the printables each week, there are lots of choices so that you can choose what will work best for your child. I used almost all of the printables the first week to see what she enjoyed the most.  That’s my suggestion for you too.  Print the entire first set and use that as a way to see what your child does/doesn’t enjoy.

My daughter is 5 1/2 and is more than ready for word families {we are a bit late honestly due to our many transitions this year} so she is easily learning one set per week. Honestly, she knows CVC words already and can sound out most words, we are just adding in word family fun to get more fun learning in.

We are using these alongside of our You Can Read Sight Words unit {we finished unit 8 recently} We basically just added this in to our other Kindergarten curriculum. If I had finished these, I would have started earlier than this with her.  As I said, we are behind due to life circumstances, but that’s OK!

What’s Included?

Here’s a picture by picture overview of the entire set of printables {including the ones we didn’t use the first week since we don’t use them all each week}. These photos also show the order we used the printables, she helped me choose what to do each day.

I am using a 3 ring binder with a clear cover to help organize Ladybug’s work.  On the front, I put the poster.  I use this first to introduce the words to her. Inside I used heavyweight sheet protectors so she can easily flip through the pages and choose.

Matching ~ draw a line to match the word to the correct picture.  Coloring optional, she almost always chooses to color ~ so different from my boys!

Beginning Sounds ~ look at the picture and figure out the missing beginning sound and write it in!

Funny Fonts ~ each word has a color, you can use dot paint or simply circle the words using crayons or markers. We have even used colored stickers to put on the words before!  The words are written in different fonts to give exposure to all sorts of writing.

Word Connecting ~ draw lines to connect the same word to make shapes, reading each word aloud as you connect.

Tracing ~ Practice left-to-right tracing skills by connecting the matching words.

Roll and Graph ~ Print the die on cardstock and cut out and fold/tape together. Roll the cube and mark the word you roll.  The pictures are wild rolls, you can choose any word to mark when you roll a picture!  See more ideas for using roll and graph here!

Play dough mats!  Use play dough to make the words.  This is great for fine motor skills,and also a time to really talk about the formation of the letters and sounds they make as you form them together.

Ladybug likes to take them off of the mats when she’s done and line them up like this!

BINGO! A very simple version of BINGO for young kids. We take turns calling out words for fun.  Each game obviously goes quickly with a small board, so we play a few times when we do this activity.

Word Building ~ I cut these out for her and spread them out on the table.  She then builds all of her words and tapes them on colored paper!

Mini Book ~ cut out the pictures, color if desired, glue on the correct page!

Sentence Search ~ we use two different colored markers for this activity.  One color for the focus words and one for any other words she can read independently.  Then at the end we read the sentences together her reading circled words and me reading the others.

Build a Word ~ in the past we have used these for stamping, but lately we’ve been using our mini letter construction set.

Here’s the printables we didn’t use this week.  I do NOT recommend using everything in each pack every week.  Most kids won’t enjoy it all or need it all.  There are many options so you can make it work for your child.

We use the poster {shown at the very top of this post} as our notebook cover, but there’s another option included as shown on the left below.  We don’t use the flashcards at this point, those are in the middle.  We also didn’t use the box handwriting practice {on right} this week.’

I hang her work up by her desk each week, here’s an end of the week photo {some of her work is done in sheet protectors with dry erase and therefore doesn’t get hung}

Lately in Our Life ~ Moving, Gymnastics, and Finding a New Normal

I love Instagram.  What started as a way for me to connect with my mom when she lived ten hours away has turned into much more.  It has become a digital scrapbook, a great way to look back.  It’s also a way to connect with my blog readers, to give you a peek into our normal life. 

I thought it would be neat to scroll through my Instagram account and use that as a springboard to share more of our behind the scenes life.  I have gotten away from a lot of personal blogging and I miss the connections.  While trying to think of a way to connect, this idea came to my mind. I hope to share a bit of what’s been going on lately in our life each week.

Here’s what’s been going on lately with our family…

Lately in our Life January 2015



We Moved

The big story lately ~ we moved. From the northeast to the southeast. We are now close to our family again {my parents and my husband’s family}.  We don’t live exactly where we were originally from, but about an hour away. It’s much closer than ten hours and we are happy God led us back down south.  With the south has come warmer winter days.  On average it’s 5-10 degrees warmer here, but for a few days in December it was almost 20 degrees warmer than our old home! My kids were VERY excited about that!

Lately in Our Life -2772


A bonus we gained with this move, a yard.  Our old yard was teeny tiny and mostly concrete {in the inner city}.  We now have almost 2 acres, and a riding lawn mower.  And a 12 year old who now knows how to use it.

Lately in Our Life -3049

A month later, I still walk outside and stand in awe.  After almost 11 years without land we are all greatly appreciative of this amazing and large space. 

Lately in Our Life -3020

Our new space explains two of the gifts our children got for Christmas.  PacMan got a bow, and the 3 kids got a trampoline!  Needless to say, life is much different with all of this outdoor activity, we are so thankful!

A New Gym

Another part of our move is Krash competing with a new gym.  We LOVE it and he does too.  Within a week of being here he gained skills he had been trying for months.  I shared the day he got his round off back handspring and then soon after that he was doing two! He had his first competition in December and although he wasn’t completely ready due to so much transition, he rocked it!  The highlight was getting first on pommel horse in his age group! His progress is awesome and we are so thankful for his new gym. He loves this sport and it is a joy to go through this journey with him.

Recovery Continues

My husband continues to recover from his accident {he fell off of a ladder in October and broke both legs}. Establishing new doctors and therapists down here hasn’t been the easiest transition, but finally we have things in place to continue his recovery. Crutches and a wheelchair are still a part of our life. Our “new normal” will be this way for at least two more months we guess.  Then, once he begins fully walking again we will find another new normal!

For now, as we meander through the current normal, we are grateful he is alive and recovering.  Having him stand with us for our family Christmas picture was awesome {even if his crutches were sitting right next to him and he was leaning on me!}.  And yes, my oldest baby is now taller than his momma.

_at Word Family Printable Puzzles

We continue to work on word families here in our homeschool Kindergarten and have another _at family printable for you!  Word Puzzles!

at Word Family Puzzles


I used to print these {the same ones are included in You Can Read Sight Words} on cardstock and laminate them, but then my daughter began liking to tape them together.  So, I now print them on regular paper and cut them apart before giving them to her all mixed up.  She sorts them all out herself using the shapes and background images to help her put the words together.

YCR at Word Family -2644


She loves to color, so she asked to color the pictures after she got them all together.  Since I suspected she might want to color them, we carefully flipped the completed puzzle over and taped it on the back so she could color on the front.
