Word Families - 154 Printable Flashcards

I have designed 154 printable flashcards featuring word families. Originally I created a small bunch of such cards with most common word families to teach my little son to read in English. My son has been learning English as a foreign language since childhood so, when he was a toddler, I started to design printable reading cards incorporating lists of words with a common ending (up to 12 words on each flashcard) and up to 9 pictures representing some of the words. The rhyming words made it easier for my son to start reading in English while observing and getting used to the spelling patterns of English words. The bright pictures helped me draw his attention to the cards and let him memorize some useful words thus expanding his vocabulary.


Later I decided to use the word family flashcards for my English classes with young students. The kids seemed to love the picture cards, and over time I made even more flashcards for my EFL teaching practice. At the moment my printable word family set counts 154 cards. There are more than 870 words illustrated with child-appealing pictures incorporated on the flashcards.
