Learning to build a word family is an important pre-reading activity. Turn learning into a fun game for kids by letting your child use some colorful sticky notes!

Knowledge of word families helps children build vocabulary. Instead of memorizing spellings and meanings of all words, they learn how to spot patterns, identify root words, and understand their common meanings or sounds. This helps in word recognition leading to the development of their reading fluency.

Studies suggest that children learn to connect what they have already learned to what they are currently learning through by observing word similarities. Understanding the concept of root words and their derivatives can help children deduce the meaning of other words in the word family. Experts also say that children tend to read quicker because of the familiarity of the words in word families. They learn to analyze language and understand common grammar rules. 

Reading is fundamental. But before we learn to read and pronounce our English words, we learn about English word families first. So, what is a word family? English word families refer to words that share a common feature, either in pattern or meaning. They are also called phonographs or chunks. Learning about word families is important in building the skill that is needed to become a skilled reader. It helps simplify the very complicated and sometimes inconsistent patterns within most English words.
