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!

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!

op 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, _at Word Puzzles, _et Play Dough Mats, _et Funny Font Word Hunt, _ig Mini Book and _op Roll and Graph. Sometimes you may also find entire sets free within blog posts or in our newsletters or blog emails!  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 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. These photos also show the order we used the printables, she helped me choose what to do each day. All of the printables are in a binder so she can easily flip through and choose.

We enjoy using our Perler Bead letters to make the words.

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.

op Word Family Roll and Graph Printable

Word family work is a daily activity here in our homeschool Kindergarten and we have a new _op word family printable for you! 

op word family roll and graph free printable

Roll and Graph is a favorite around here.  We have a post sharing ideas for using Roll and Graph printables.  My daughter’s favorite way to record is using small stickers.

YCR op word family -4239

She rolls the cube and marks the word she gets.  Then I have a turn and I mark.  We usually share the same graph. 

YCR OP Word Family -4243

She likes to play until the entire graph is full, giving each word 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place!

There are two “wild rolls” on the cube.  The ones with the pictures.  When you roll one of those you can choose whatever word you want to mark!

IG Word Family Mini Book

Word family work is a daily activity here in our homeschool Kindergarten and we have a new _ig word family printable for you! 

ig word family mini book free printable

This mini book is a simple activity to reinforce the words being learned. To prepare I cut the pages of the book out and stapled them together.  I cut around the outside edges of the pictures, but let her cut the pictures out by herself.

She LOVES to color, so everything gets colored around here.  Totally opposite from my boys!

YCR ig Word Family -3640

 

She also likes to cut!

She really enjoys using tape, so we use it instead of glue sometimes.

YCR ig Word Family -3653

 

Once all of the pictures are cut out, she reads the word on each page and finds the correct picture and tapes it on!
