Word Families

Free word family worksheets and printables for students learning to read. Word families are groups of words that share the same root or base word and have similar patterns or structures. By focusing on word families, such as “-at” (cat, hat, sat) or “-ig” (big, pig, wig), educators can effectively introduce phonics principles and help children recognize patterns in language. This is an important building block in the journey to reading. Find free word family printables, worksheets, activities, and more below!
