Start your reading journey with Dot! Building phonemic awareness is a vital step in the learning to read process. After your child has mastered their letter sounds, it’s time to move on to CVC words! You can do just that with these OT Word Family Worksheets.

When I was teaching my boys to read, I wanted something simple, with few sight words. I was baffled at how difficult this proved to be. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention, so I created these simple CVC patterned decodable readers, and worksheets. Sight words should not be a focus in the beginning of teaching your child to read. Once your child has mastered the word families, and letter sounds, then you can consider moving on to sight words. However, take your time, there is no need to rush the process.

What is Included in the OT Word Family Worksheets?

  • 5 worksheets
  • 1 decodable reader “Dot”
  • comprehension questions for the story “Dot”

Anytime you are reading with your child modeling good reading is key. But here are some extra tips to try.

  • Day 1-You read the age/level appropriate story to your child
  • Day 2-You read a word then they read the same word back to you
  • Day 3-You both read the words together simultaneously
  • Day 4-Now its your child’s turn to practice reading independently!

Do not worry if your child cannot read the story, just continue with more practice, they will get there eventually.

Laminate your OT word family worksheets to get more use out of them. We enjoy using letter tiles, alphabet magnets, or EXPO markers to write in the letters. Take the worksheets slowly, practicing one a day. By the time you are done with them you have completed over a weeks worth of work! Use the comprehension questions provided to discuss the story with your child, or come up with your own questions.

I hope you enjoy using the OT word family worksheets as much as I enjoyed creating them!
