Tom the Turkey Word Family Bird. I made this turkey to help my Kinders to practice making short i word families. The turkey isn't fully attached to the black paper so the feathers can easily slip in and out of the "pocket." To make -it words, the kids can select a feather and clip it on the brown shape above Tom's head with a clothespin. The -it shape is attached with masking tape, so it will be easy to change word families.
|At Hats. We brainstormed a list of -at words - the kiddos were amazed that they could easily spell and read -at words. They wrote the words we spelled onto the hat band.|
