My Kindergartners always love the word family sliders we make together. This hands-on word family craft helps them continue to work on fine motor skills (important for strengthening hands to write letters), and gain confidence reading kindergarten word families. There are over 20 word family sliders free included in these word family slides printables including ug, ig, eep, ip, un, en, at, ot, ank, ill, ar, an, ish, ite, ail, ox, ed, op, ate, and oon. You can print them in black and white and allow students to color the slider to decorate, or print them in color on cardstock for a reusable way for grade 1 and kindegarteners to practice reading word families.
