Spin a Word Family

For most kids, those tricky middle vowels take lots of practice to finally stick. (If you’ve ever read with a child who reads the word DOG as DIG or DUG or DEG, you know what I mean.)

But thankfully, this batch of print-and-play word family games are a quick prep, motivating way to focus on individual vowels.

Spin a Word Family

When it comes to prep time, it doesn’t get much quicker than this!

I simply printed the sheets I wanted to play and grabbed a paperclip, pencil and crayons.

Then I invited my son over to play a couple rounds.

He placed the paperclip in the center of the spinner and flicked it around the tip of his pencil to make it spin.

The paperclip landed on a hat the first time around so my son said the word out loud and then colored a matching “hat” on one of the glue bottles.

The simple game was an awesome way to practice reading -AT words so when he finished the first sheet, I grabbed the next one in the batch so he could focus on the -IG family too!
