Recently we launched our new You Can Read Word Families program!  You can read more about it and see the first set shared, featuring _at word family printables. This week we are sharing _et word family printables with you!

et 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 and _et Funny Font Word Hunt. 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 unit {we finished unit 9 alongside of this unit} We basically just added this in to our other Kindergarten curriculum.

Here’s a peek at what we used this week. 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.

Recently she made a set of Perler Bead letters, so I got out the letters we would need for these words and we used the poster as a guide to introduce the new words and make them with the letters she made!  She loved this!

Word Puzzles!  She likes to color these when she’s done so we tape carefully on the back so she can flip them over to color.

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

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.

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!

Matching ~ draw a line to match the word to the correct picture.

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}
