Short ‘a’ Word Families Galore
Word family study is an essential part of reading instruction. They represent patterns in our language. By mastering these single syllable words, students become more comfortable with rhyming and eventually learn to decode longer, more complex words. All this will help your students become better readers. This Word Family packet includes six short ‘a’ families included in Short “a’ Word Families Galore.
