When you teach word families, do you teach all of them? If not, how do you pick and choose?

I use the ones that go with our spelling/phonics from our reading series: Treasures. I try to incorporate others that have the same vowel pattern but not necessarily ones that are in the spelling words. For example, when we do short a, I may do the "at" chunk, the "an" chunk, and the "ap" chunk.

I do one at a time. I would start with the short a ones (i.e. at, an, ap, ot, op, it, in, et, en, etc.). Then I move in to long vowels.

I teach one word family at a time. I follow the order they are introduced in using our reading series.

We focus on one family per week. We start with the short vowels--the most common found in their reading. Then in Feb. we begin to focus on long vowel patterns.

Does anyone display word family posters, or is it a simple concept for them to grasp without posting?? Just wondering..

I reccomend going to this website and buying these word family cutouts. Each week we brainstorm a list. Then I can post it in the classroom for the year. I laminate them and use dry erase markers so I can use them every year.

I love them! They are a great visual
