During the elementary years, three of my children struggled with writing stamina. The physical act of handwriting was harder for them, so I searched for alternate activities that would still involve learning, but not always need a pencil. Dab It Worksheets were always a favorite since bingo daubers are just plain fun!
This set of Winter Word Families Dab It Worksheets features a wintry cupcake theme. If you have a child that loves to color, print the black and white version of this set and color away after you dab the correct words.
➡️ If you have children with poor writing stamina, make sure you check out the other Dab It worksheets for more learning ideas.

Winter Word Families Dab It Worksheets
Early readers need a wide variety of phonics activities to improve fluency and aid in spelling. This set of winter worksheets is a fun way to practice word families.
Word families are groups of words that have the same sound and a similar spelling pattern. For example, words in the -an family are ban, can, Dan, fan, etc.
It is helpful for young readers to study words in context and also in groups of word families to help them recognize patterns and increase reading fluency.
In this activity, readers find all of the words on the Winter Cupcake strip that match the same pattern. 66 different word families are included in this printable activity. There are two Word Family strips per page. Simply cut the pages apart if desired.
Use a bingo dauber or another manipulative for your early reader to mark the answers for all of the words in the same family.
