Word Family Worksheets


Use word family worksheets to help children understand word-families.

For example... once a child understands that the letters a and m form the sound am, it's much easier for them to understand that simply adding a letter or two will create a word. At that point they will be able to read ham, jam, swam, ram, etc.

The worksheets below will ask the children to read both words in each section, then circle and write the word that describes the picture.
