Dinosaur Word Family Center Freebie

Do you teach word families? Word families are one of my favorite ways to introduce or reinforce CVC words and rhyming words. I love seeing the lightbulbs start to go off when they recognize words with the same ending sounds and how they are spelled the same. It really helps build their phonics skills!

This adorable center helps students recognize different word families for each vowel and sort the pictures based on their ending sounds. 

To prep, I printed the dinosaurs and eggs on cardstock and cut them out. Eggs can be tedious to cut, so it looks perfectly fine if you just cut them out as rectangles and save some time!

I like to use Small Pocket Charts like these for centers where there are a lot of pieces. It helps students stay organized and pieces aren't all over the floor! 

Students start with the 3 dinos on the chart, and then match each egg to the correct word family.

You can get these 3 word families (ad, ap, at) for free at the button below!

The full product is also available in color or black and white with 15 word families and 5 recording sheets, click the image below. :)
