Designed specifically for small-group instruction, Cut & Paste Word Family Sentences takes an active learning approach, providing students with multiple hands-on opportunities to develop an understanding of over 37 essential phonograms while building a wide range of literacy skills.
Knowledge of these essential phonograms enables students to read and spell more than 500 words. Students can then draw on their instant recognition of these phonograms to help them read more complex words quickly and with automaticity, thereby improving reading fluency and allwoing their brains to focus on comprehension.

Students tackle each scrambled word family sentence word by word, put the words in the correct order, and then practice reading the words within the context of the sentence. The partially completed illustration on each sentence page gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their comprehension through discussion and creative expression.
