You can also see the _et Word Family in action here, our _ig Word Family in action here, the _op Word Family in action here, _ug word family in action here and _an here!

This week we are sharing _en word family printables with you!

en word family printables

We will be releasing 15 sets {three for each short vowel}.  I have already released free _at Q-Tip Painting, _at Word Puzzles, _et Play Dough Mats, _et Funny Font Word Hunt, _ig Mini Book, _op Roll and Graph and _an Worksheets. Sometimes you may also find entire sets free within blog posts!  Full sets will also be listed in my Teacher’s Notebook Shop for $1.25 each and I am almost ready to begin selling the bundled set!

 

How we are Using These…

We are using these alongside of our You Can Read Sight Words. We basically just added this in to our other Kindergarten curriculum.

Here’s a peek at what we used during this unit. She is picking up the word families much quicker now so we aren’t using as many of the activities.  Once she has mastered the words and feels confident, we move on. That’s why you’ll see less in this post than previous posts.

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 Search ~ all words are hidden and in left-right order to make it easier for younger kids.

YCR en Word Family -7033[4]

 

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. Funny thing, she’s advanced so much that she is circling all of the words on the page now! 

YCR en Word Family -7166[4]

A sign your child has progressed a lot with reading is when all of the words on the page are circled!

YCR en Word Family -7171[3]

 

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

YCR en Word Family -7175[3]

 

I hang her work up by her desk each week, here’s an end of the week photo. Only a few things since the words are being learned quickly!

Mr. Cookie Baker Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

We are loving our Kindergarten Literature Units,  and recently completed Mr. Cookie Baker!

Mr. Cookie Baker Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

We spread this unit out over two weeks, doing just a little each day.


Day One

On the first day we read the book together, and worked on our cookie graph together.

Mr Cookie Baker -5747

 

She also completed the C is for Cookie activity, but I didn’t get a photo!

C is for Cookie Printable

 


Day Two

She loves working with money, so the coin matching and counting activity was a big hit.  We played “store” and bought and sold the cookies together, practicing naming the coins and adding them up.

Practicing reading color words as she colors cookies.

Grand Finale ~ Cookie Baking

Of course we had to back cookies!  WE even used the recipe in the back of the book, which she LOVED!  My oldest son is our baker, so he led the entire process, which took a couple of days!

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! 

an word family worksheets

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!

YCR an word family -5451

 

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!

YCR an word family -6323

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!

Grab your free copy of the_an Worksheets here!

While there you’ll get a peek at the full _an word family printable set.  Many FREE individual files will be coming soon, the full set is available in my Teacher’s Notebook Shop if you want it now!

You Can Read Sight Words Unit 12

You Can Read Sight Words continues to be a fun part of our homeschool Kindergarten.  Along with adding these new words, we also reviewed the previous words from unit 1, unit 2, unit 3, unit 4, unit 5, unit 6, unit 7, unit 8, unit 9, unit 10 and unit 11.

You can see how we store ALL of our You Can Read stuff here.

You Can Read Sight Words Unit 12

We are now using these alongside of our new You Can Read Word Family printables.  She is learning 4 new sight words and one word family per week now.  We will slow down if she needs to, but this seems to be just right for her at this time.

Here’s the photo recap of what I captured…

We started with our cubes!  This is always a fun way to practice old words and new words!
