    • Ned led the girl with the red sled
    • the men chased the hen around her pen
    • Bret, the vet, helped my pet
  2. Create your own word family sentences using the ones above as a model.  Try to create at least one sentence for each family.
  3. Create a short rhyme using your word families.  This is a good activity to do as a group.  Here are some examples:

    First, I think, you will be fed.
    Then, I think, you're off to bed!

    In the secret, wooded glen.
    Lives a very lovely wren.

    Mom, where did I put my net?
    I have to run and catch my pet!
