Word Family & Anchor Chart Fun

Just had to share a little project I've been working on to help my firsties understand how "bossy e" works at the end of certain words. I found the inspiration for this cute, cute anchor chart from this post by my friend Nicole at Teaching With Style.
This was the perfect companion for the new word family workbook I'd already created to use in my class. It includes 36 word family rimes, all with long vowels. I also threw in several pages at the end for review/assessment with a fun cut & paste activity. Just click on any of the pictures to see this in my TpT store.
 

 I also re-created this adorable chart, inspired from the same post. In fact, I asked the school secretary to special order me my favorite markers in the entire world for this project: Sharpie flip chart markers. If you have not tried them, you must! I just discovered them last school year and am in LOVE.
I also created a word family workbook featuring 37 rimes with the short vowel sounds:

    1. Hi Lana,
      Sorry it's taken me so long to reply! My poor blog has been a big neglected the past few years as I've taken on a new teaching position. I had to take the word families packet down temporarily because I mistakenly used some clip art in it that was not for commercial use. I've since corrected the mistake and re-uploaded it to my store. :) The books of word families can now be found here:
