-AT Word Family Activities | CVC Worksheets and Easy Reader
When I was teaching my son to read I had a hard time finding books for him. I wanted something that was not too hard, had easy-to-decode words, and did not have too many sight words.
I was surprised to find out how hard this was!
He was devouring everything our preschool reading curriculum had to offer, and I was desperate to feed that hunger. We made do with what we had, but I do not want you to be left out like I was!
Fret no more! I have just what you need if you are finding yourself in a similar situation, my word family activities & easy reader set!
Once your child has learned their letter sounds, you may be looking to move on to CVC words. CVC words are words that follow a simple Vowel Consonant Vowel pattern. I have created the perfect next step! The first of many CVC worksheets and accompanying readers are now available! Today you can start out with the AT family, by downloading the 6 worksheets plus the 4-page accompanying reader.
Each page is numbered.
Work slowly, consider doing just one page a day. First, your child can practice the simple sentence at the top of the worksheet, and work down from there.
Grab some letter tiles, play-doh or laminate the pages and use a dry-erase marker to write the letters. The worksheets focus on the vowel sound for each set of words.
For instance, C_T is the first word, with the child only filling in the A to complete the word. The sight words are listed at the bottom of the worksheet, but these are not the main focus.
Then, you can continue through the worksheets, with a new sentence to practice with each sheet.
Review the words you have learned by spelling the whole word and other words in that family.
Lastly, move on to the easy reader. Your child has now practiced all the sentences for the easy reader, had exposure to the simple sight words, and can have the confidence to read.
As you use the easy reader, I have also included comprehension questions!
