I gave each student a word family and they came up with a list of words that they thought fit into that word family. They each typed them and created a word cloud on the IPAD. I printed out each word family and then gave the students a different word family. I put their word clouds on the desks so they had to walk around and find the words that went with their word family. When they were done we used it as a matching center during reading stations.
Word Cloud is a free, easy to use app...they were finished typing in minutes!
I put this on a document camera and they had to write words that had that sound in them.
We also made our own word family spinner and then came up with a list of words that fit that word family.
