Peek-a-boo Word Families!

To continue with the lesson on word families, I came up with open the flap kind of game. We used index cards, wrote several word families and words too that go with the family. We covered the first letter with construction paper.

We named a color and then they would lift the flap of the color and read the word. Also along with reading the word we named what family it belonged too.


After we used the cards we put them on the back of cardboard and we will hang it up on the wall.


We will use it for morning drills! It was simple and fun, the children always loved those kind of books, where you had to discover what was behind the flaps. We knew this one would be a hit.

They were even gentle with it and curious as we made it, about what was behind the colored squares.
