Word Families:  ag 

bag gag hag
lag nag rag
sag tag wag


brag drag flag
snag stag swag

Word families are words which end the same forming a chunk that the children can learn to say altogether rather than sounding out each letter sound.  For example bag:  sound out the b and add the chunk ag forming bag.

Word families also encourage children to find patterns in words so they can recall this information in a timely fashion.

Word families encourage children to spell better as you guide them to search for a word in the family that they already know how to spell.  For example if they know how to spell bag then they can remember the chunk (ag) to spell hag.  They have to only replace the first letter.

Ag Rhyme

By Mrs. Alphabet

I saw a wag

Inside the bag.

Is this a gag?
