You Can Read Word Families ~ UG Word Family in Action

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. You can also see the _et Word Family in action here, our _ig Word Family in action here, and the _op Word Family in action here!

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

ug 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.

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 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.
