I am finally sharing with you one of my favorite stories that I have created. With this EN Word Family Worksheets you will receive “Ben’s Hen”, the adorable decodable reader. Ben’s hen is Jen and she has ten chicks! Your child will enjoy visiting Ben’s farm in this fun little story.

When I was teaching my boys to read, I was shocked at how hard it was to find decodable readers with basic CVC words, and few sight words. I created these for you, so that you are not left in the dark as I was. After your child has mastered their letter sounds, the next step is to put those sounds together into CVC words. CVC words are words that have a consonant, vowel, consonant pattern. Words such as cat, mat, hat, pat, rat…are all CVC words. Sight words should not be a focus when first teaching your child to read. Only after they have mastered CVC words should they move on to sight words. CVC words all have basic short vowel sounds so you should work all the way through your vowels: AEIOU. I have created these stories with very few sight words, so as not to overwhelm your child.

What is Included in the EN Word Family Worksheets?

  • 6 worksheets to build EN word family words
  • 1 decodable reader “Ben’s Hen” (please print double sided and you will get 4 “pages”)

Laminate the worksheets for year of use, especially when using with multiple kids. We enjoy using letter tiles, alphabet magnets, or EXPO markers when working with these worksheets. Take things slow, no need to rush. Plan only one worksheet for the day and work until that sheet has been mastered. By the time your child has worked through all 6 worksheets they will be ready to read the story, as they have been practicing it the whole time! Do not get discouraged if your child is not ready to read the story. They just need more time, and that is ok.

I hope you enjoy the story “Ben’s Hen” as much as I enjoyed making it.
