Ideas for Use

Family Thematic Unit Word Cards - Suggestions for Use


  • Remember the capital rules - Use a capital with these words only when the context is more 'personal' or a particular title like 'Aunty Betsie' but 'her aunty' or 'Mum and Dad said ...' but 'your mum is coming over....'
  • Brainstorm and see if you can come up with more 'family' words.
  • Don't forget you can print these at this size or smaller is you like by adjusting your printer settings.
  • Works in well with My Family Concept Book. Children use the word cards to help 'label' (will need capitals) each immediate and extended family member as they draw.
  • Please share your ideas with other teachers and parents in COMMENTS - below..

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.

  • Dear Donna, thanks so much for doing these, i remember when i asked for these last year when i was teaching my special ed kids, im now at another school in NW WA and they will be just as useful in the two classes im now teaching, (Year 3 and Year 4), as the kids here arent necessarily up to the rest of the ozzie kids out there.
