A great way to teach word families

I HAVE MOVED THIS IDEA TO TEACHER RESOURCE SUGGESTION BOX AS MANY COMMENTS ARE COMING UP FOR US TO MAKE THESE UP.....
A relief teacher on my Kindy class had the kids complete a word wheel with 'at' words. What made this special and memorable was that it was in the shape of a cat, and the cat had a moveable round belly with the beginning sounds that could be spun around to make each 'at' word. It was fastened with a split pin. The kids then made a list of all the words in their scrapbooks next to the glued in cat.
The kids enjoyed this so much that we have continued to make these word wheels in the shape of a frog to complete 'og' words. We are going to do a frying pan for 'an' words, a mit for 'it' words, a sun for 'un' words and a jet for 'et' words.
