Word Family Boggle

I wanted to come up with a fun and unique way to study word families.  As a kindergarten teacher I had to find something that would be classified as independent work for my students.  So here is what I came up with using word families. 

I created my own center on a bulletin board or you can use magnets and put on the back of a file cabinet.  Students are given a particular word family to study like the -at family.  They are given a laminated word mat and told to use the words on the wall to make a new word.  Boggle style if you will for kindergarten.  They can write the word using a dry erase marker or print up another set of word cards for them to manipulate.
Once they create their words they are given a word study book to either cut and glue the new words they made or they can simply write in the books and then practice writing their new word. 

You can get this packet at my TpT store or Teacher's Notebook store.  If you follow  The Teaching Bug's facebook page there just might be a surprise this week with this new packet!  Stay tuned!    
Alright enough propoganda.  :)  I just get excited to share new things.  Have a great week!
