What are CVC Word Families
Based on Wikipedia, the definition of Word Families are:
A word family is the base form of a word plus its inflected forms and derived forms made with suffixes and prefixes plus its cognates, i.e. all words that have a common etymological origin, some of which even native speakers don’t recognize as being related.
CVC refers to Consonant, Vowel, Consonant.
In short, CVC word families, also known as phonograms, are groups of words that share the same rime, but have different onsets.
If kids can recognize a word chunk (phonogram) within the unknown word, they are likely to build an understanding of word patterns and decode more words while reading.
Thankfully, according to the science of reading, learning word families will increase your kids ability to become a fluent reader.
