Get your students engaged in a fun activity for word families that uses recognizable language and images to focus on different beginning letters for word family phonograms. Each sturdy plastic Word Slider (27 included) provides students with practice building four words with the same phonogram and offers self-checking on the other side. The Word Sliders are conveniently color-coded for vowel groups and feature VC and VCC phonograms that allow young learners to see how letters and sounds combine to build each word. Students move the sliding beginning-letter Sound Card to line up one of the beginning sounds with the phonogram, and then read the word. Next, they move the sliding Picture Card until the image matches the word. Then, to self-check, they turn the Slider over to look for matching symbols indicating a correct answer.

  • WHAT’S INCLUDED: The Word Sliders: Word Families set includes 27 plastic Word Sliders (4½"" x 6"" each), 1 Instruction Card (5"" by 6½""), and a Storage Box with lid.
  • COLOR-CODED SLIDERS MAKE SCAFFOLDING SELECTIONS EASY: The colors of each Slider represent a different vowel grouping so it’s easy to find exactly what you need: a (blue), e (orange), i (green), o (yellow), and u (red.)
  • REINFORCE READING COMPREHENSION: Students use the combination of letters, images, and phonograms to practice word-families and expand their vocabulary.
  • EMPOWER STUDENTS WITH SELF-CHECKING: The reverse side of each Slider features shape-matching answer windows for students to self-check their work. Students will love seeing those matching shapes for a correct answer!
  • PROVIDE VERSATILE SLIDERS FOR YOUR CLASSROOM: These hands-on Word Sliders – Word Families are perfect for individual, partners, and small group lessons and activities. Your students will love the challenge of completing all 27 Sliders correctly!"
