Parents, caregivers and teachers will want to use these materials at home or at school with beginning readers and writers.

Our free, printable, early learning dowloads include high-frequency sight words for children learning to read, word family printables and word family flip books for beginning readers, alphabets, writing paper for kids, nursery rhymes, songs and fingerplays for preschool and kindergarten circle time, pictures of rhyming words, word searches, crossword puzzles, and more. These free teaching resources are great for children in preschool, kindergarten and the early primary grades. They are especially helpful for homeschooling families.

This is the Scotch laminator I use at my home.

Most of these materials have been used with children in our Getting Ready to Read and Beginning to Read programs. In most cases, we print the materials onto cardstock, laminate them with our Scotch® Laminating Dispenser and are “good to go.” We have used the laminator in a home office for many years and have never had a problem with it. We like the convenience of a cool (no heat) laminator as it is always ready.

These word family printables are great for children who are learning to read. We have grouped them together on our Word Family Printables page.

For a beginning reader, discovering that cot, dot, hot, pot and rot are related is exciting. Children who are just learning to sound out words will be thrilled to learn that they can substitute the beginning sound and read three, four or more related words. We view learning about word families as a great springboard for beginning readers.
