This word family sort activity can be a great to use as a center for your beginning readers who need practice with word families.
Use this word work center to help students work on sorting words.
We have created this word family sort to help your early readers recognize word patterns. We have included a page you can print on the back for students to use two of the words in sentences. At the bottom of this page you will find a simple editing checklist for students to use.
You can download the complete PDF by clicking on the bold link at the bottom of this post.
This activity contains 72 words in ten different word families so you can choose the number of word families you want your students to sort from. To make it a bit more challenging, add more word families.
The collection includes a set of colored word cards that you can print on card stock and laminate for durability and frequent use. It also contains simple black and white pages that you can print for one time use & student practice and/or take home. (Or print both – one for your center and another set to send home with students who need them.) Print the pages that work for you needs.
We have included a page of blank cards for you to add your own word families as desired.
When sorting two word families, you may choose to use the recording page. Or, if you are trying to use less paper in your classroom, have students make their own record on a white board.
Teachers in classrooms with tablets might choose to have their children make a list of the sorted words on their devices.

As always, this collection has been designed for free classroom use. You may copy for your own classroom and students. You may not modify and sell on any sites. Please feel free to share this post with your colleagues!
