Family of Words
Teaching Children to Identify and Manipulate Word Families
Jack Hartmann


This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Shake, Rattle n' Read.

Chorus:
Hey, look we’re a family
We work as a family
Hey, look we’re a family
A family of words you see

Let’s meet the at family
Words that end with "at"
We’ll give you the beginning sound
Then put them together with "at"

What word does it make?
What word does it make?
b - at = bat
(Children respond)

What word does it make?
What word does it make?
c - at = cat
(Children respond)

(Repeat for the onsets of h, m, p, r, and s.)

Repeat Chorus
Let’s meet the ug family
Words that end with "ug"
We’ll give you the beginning sound
Then put them together with "ug"

What word does it make?
What word does it make?
b - ug = bug
(Children respond)

(Repeat for the onsets of d, h, j, m, r, and t.)

Repeat Chorus

 

Teaching Tips from Jack Hartmann:
  
  This is another word family development song. This one puts the beginning sound and the word family sound close so children can really hear them together. Follow how children do the first one. A word family chart would be a very helpful visual aid.
    For Version 2 of this song, use any word family you want & follow the same way as in
Version 1.
