Reading Comprehension: Word Families

Sunday, February 3, 2019
I am so excited to share this new resource with you, all! It is something Kindergarten ELA teachers need and it is so incredibly helpful when teaching reading to your students. It targets the main components of reading: phonemic awareness, comprehension, fluency, vocabulary and phonological awareness. This is the Reading Comprehension Passages: Word Families unit.
This set will be part of a Reading Comprehension Phonemic Awareness GROWING BUNDLE that will be added soon and will be on sale on my TPT shop until all 8 of the units are added. This bundle will include:
  • Word Families (as shown here)
  • Vowel Teams
  • Silent/Magic E
  • R-Controlled Vowels
  • Consonant Buddies
  • Double Consonants
  • Digraphs and
  • Dipthongs
Ok, let's get started! This unit is comprised of a total of 25 reading comprehension passages focused on word families. It includes 20 different word families (as shown below) and 1 review assessment for each short vowel (a, e, i, o, u). This packet can be used to teach short vowel word families and reading comprehension in:
  • Whole group
  • Small groups (centers, DI)
  • Independent work
It can also be used to reinforce concepts for homework. I recommend using this packet over a 5-week period when the students are learning to build their fluency with short  vowel sounds.
You can make learning to read fun and exciting without the hassle of prepping any activities. These engaging NO PREP - PRINT & GO activities contain ELA skills that are aligned with CCSS. This unit contains a plethora of fun-to-read passages that can be split into 5 weeks or tailored to your students' learning pace!
Each section of this unit contains B/W options allowing easier printing at schools and coloring opportunities for students.
