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.

Steps and Skills Completed on Each Worksheet:

Not only are you going to love the no-prep required, but the kids will love the opportunity to cut, paste, color, and write.  

Of course you can sit with your kids to help them complete the task, but the goal is for them to do the sorting and writing activity independently.  

To set your kids up for success, go over the pictures with them first.  Encourage them to say the word.  If they don’t know what it is, help them.  

Going over the pictures before they are left to break down the onsets and rimes will assure they are using the correct word.
