FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Phonics Worksheets for ‘AKE’, ‘ACK’, & ‘ALL’ Word Families”

by ESL Lifeline
1st – 2nd Grade

Word family decoding activities are helpful tools for teaching phonics.

This resource offers handouts and activities to learn words in the “-ake”“-ack”, & “-all” word families. These simple activities will introduce your learners to words that are part of each of the same word family. They all center around the theme of Construction Sites.

It comes with printer-friend versions that are included in the package, as well as answer keys. It is best to use this resource while teaching about word families specifically, and the activities included are intended as supplementary.

Phonics handouts are excellent materials to have for interventions. They can be used to get late readers back on track and, for older children, offer a thoughtful way to reinforce previously learned concepts.

Do your students also like EXCAVATORS? See my Excavator Phonics, Word Analysis & Decoding Resource similar to this one HERE.
