Word wall center children read the word to a partner, then build the word with the magnet letters. This is made with a large oil drip pan from an auto parts store:)

Easy.. Create each child's name on computer, put inside a sheet protector....when making their name-----make first letter means go.. Last letter red.. Red means stop. Provide lots of capital and lowercase letters to manipulate. Write your own name or a friends name

LEGO Word Family Sorting

LEGO Word Family Sorting from This Reading Mama. You just write a choice amount of words from 2 or more word families, put them in a bin. When ready to do the activity select 2 or more of different word families and have your students link/put together the blocks that are the same word family. I would use a dry erase marker to know for sure that the writing can be removed. Great phonics activity.
