"Post It" Word Family Practice

Here is a simple way to reinforce the concept of word families for a beginning reader. Since we've started using Reading Eggs, Ben has become more interested in playing around with the way words are constructed. In order to reinforce some of the words he learning while he uses the program, I created this quick little "game" for us to use while he's offline.

On an index card, I wrote the word family we're working on (in this case, "_at"). Then I wrote the letters he's worked with already onto Post It notes. The "game" is played by me calling out the word for him to make, and him choosing the correct letter to start the word.
 See? Easy-peasy and pretty entertaining as well.
