Word Families

Mrs. Cudmore 29/01/2018

We have been busy learning about “Word Families” in grade 1!

A word family is a group of words that have a common feature or pattern – they have some of the same combinations of letters in them and a similar sound. For example, at, cat, hat and fat are a family of words with the “at” sound and letter combination in common.

So far, we have learned about the “at”, “am”, “ap” and “an” families.

Please ask your children about this and ask them to make some words for you!
