What are Word Family Patterns?

Greetings,

I hope you had a great weekend. Today I will be sharing with you our newest videos on word family patterns. These are patterns and groups of words that have a common feature or pattern in words.

Word family patterns have combinations ofletters in them with similar sounds. For example ball, call, fall and hall are a family of words with the "all" sound-letter combination. We have posted numberous word family patterns to assist your child with their reading, spelling and speaking skills.

Many of the nursery rhymes and poems contain common word family patterns. You can use these rhymes to teach letter-sound combinations. When teaching these letter-sound combinations, your child will be able to identify and understand how words are used and spoken.



You will want to memorize the rhyme or pattern.  It is recommended to study one to two word family patterns a week or until they have the patterns memorized.  The word family patterns can be taught as early as Kindergarten.  We hope you enjoy them.  We will see you next week.  Take care.
