Printable Word Family Houses
Recently I posted about the importance of learning to read with word families (see the beginning of this post). Today I’m sharing these printable word family houses that I use with my 4 1/2 year old. I find that while he’s resistant to flash cards, he likes to do these hands-on reading activities. These would work well for preschoolers up through first grade.Here’s how to assemble them:
1) Print the document on brightly colored cardstock. Here’s what a sample download will look like:
2. Cut out the house and wheel. Make sure to cut into the house and snip out the window, too.
3. Laminate both pieces. I love this affordable home laminator. If you’ve cut out the window before laminating, you will have a nice clear window. This is what you will have:
4. Attach the pieces together with a brass fastener. Here are our finished houses:
And here’s my son reading a word family house:
Bonus… get all 35 word family houses, updated and in a single download!
We highly recommend this reading curriculum for learning short vowel words – it’s fantastic!
