Word Families by Teach Speech Apps helps develop the skills needed to help recognize and learn word families. Word families are groups of words that have a common feature or pattern - they have some of the same combinations of letters in them and a similar sound. For example, sat, mat, and bat are a family of words with the "at" sound and letter combination in common. Using word families is a powerful way to teach beginning spellers that words contain patterns. Included in this app are the most common word families and some of the words they make up.
This interactive app helps individuals learn word families in a fun and engaging way. Four activities include:

Ratings and Reviews
I feel robbed
I read the reviews and thought this would be a good investment. Boy was I wrong. Here are my issues: 1. I want to be able to pick my own word family and target just those words. 2. There is no option for voice. I work with hearing impaired students and I have to teach them to distinguish between the sounds they hear. 3. Settings is pointless, it doesn’t allow you to customize anything. 4. Am I doing something wrong? This app absolutely stinks!!! I want my $ back!!!!
Wonderful teaching app
This is perfect for what we are learning right now. My kindergarten and first grade kids are learning from these apps. I love all the Teach Speech Apps.
I am a speech pathologist who works with preK - 1st grade children with special needs. I use Teach Speech Apps on a daily basis in therapy. This is a great addition to my iPad to work on word families.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
