Spin a Word Family

For most kids, those tricky middle vowels in CVC words take lots of practice to finally stick. 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. (If you’re prepping this for a classroom set, print out one copy for each student.)

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!

It was a great and fun way to practice word families. When you replace games with flashcards, it opens up a whole new level of learning!
