Word Families

Nursery rhymes are a great phonemic awareness introduction for young children because they introduce rhyme and common word families. After reading these in a shared reading experience you can hand- out the word family picture cards below.  As you are handing them out tell the children the name of the picture.  Look at the word frog, log, cool, pool and bug  in the nursery rhyme FIVE SPECKLED FROGS.  Have the children come forward if they have the rhyming card.  This is also a great vocabulary development activity because you can also discuss the meaning of each word.
