How many ways are there to practice word families?
I can’t even count them all. The possibilities for word family games are endless.
We’ve done some Highlighter Words and even made an AT Hat. This time, we’re going to play a fun IN word family game: Hide and Seek Words.

Prep your IN word family game
Before you begin, you’ll need a set of words. I’ve prepared a batch of IN words family printable flashcards you can use. Click here to download and print.
There are 15 words that print on two pieces of paper. Print them out on regular paper or card stock for durability.
Cut apart all the cards.
It’s time to play hide and seek words!
You need at least two people to play this game.
You need one person to hide the words. (This is a great job for a parent!) And, you need at least one other person to find the words. You can have as many seekers as you would like.
Take all the IN words and hide them. You can play this game indoors or outdoors. Anything goes!
Once all the words are hidden, it’s time to seek. The job of the seeker is to find a word, read the word, and say the word. Can you find them all?
This IN word family game can be played over and over until you’ve mastered all the words. It’s such a fun way to practice reading.
More fun variations of this IN word family game
Are you working on a different word family? You can just print out a different set of cards to use with this game. You can go here to find all my word family flashcards.
Try this game with sight words or spelling words instead of word families. Just write your your words on index cards to hide.
