Print on cardstock. Cut out the tables. Laminate for protection. Cut
out all smaller blocks. Match up single or double letters with the ”word
family” letters on the larger blocks. Encourage your child to sound the
letters and then add it to the word family ending. Does it make a word
she recognises? It would be fun to get your child to write the letters
that get picked up and the words that are made on the next sheet of
paper, or use the word building mat. Practice a few times over time
and you will be amazed at how quickly the concept is picked up ☺
