How to make Word Family Flags
The set-up for these word family flags is super-simple.
First decide how many word families you are going to collect. You can make one, three, or as many flags as you would like. You’ll need one flag per word family.
For each flag, cut a decorative line along the bottom. I made zig-zags, but you can also do a curved bottom or any design you want.
At the top of each flag, write your word families. We used -at, -in, and -un word families. But, use whatever word family you want to work on.
Attach them to a wall, door, or bulletin board and get ready to collect words.
It’s time to collect words!
Now, we get to do the fun part, collecting words.
There are many ways to do this step.
– Your child can try to come up with as many words as they can off the top of their head and then write them on the flag.
– Print off coordinating Word Family Cards from our Printables Resources. Cut them out, sort, and glue on the correct flag.
– Cut words from newspapers, flyers, or magazines that fit each word family.
– Search through a book to find word examples and them write them on the flag.
Or, you can combine all the examples and do a fun collection of words.
