My Learning to Read Series- Part 1

Welcome to my latest series as part of my part-time homeschooling attempts. I have been trying to teach Princess to read in the last few weeks and we started with Word Families and familiarized ourselves with the "-at" family first. I used the Paint Chip idea I saw on The Snail's Trail blog. We are working on single beginning letters rather than including blended letters first. I am amazed at how quickly Princess picked up the concept. But I did learn not to push her to practice for too long because she loses focus easily. We used the white board too as a reinforcer to the beginning...
So I sat down the other night and came up with an idea to help her with her recognition of the word families. I dug in deep and opened my PSE program to create Word Family Sorting Mat with Words. So I thought I would share with you the first of the series, which features 3 sorting sheets for word families: -at, -an, and -ar, along with words to match to the sorting mats (I did include some blended words but not a lot. There are blank squares if you want to add the blended words yourself.)

Have fun helping your child on their path to learning to read.
