Tablet time, word families and a new freebie!

So, we all know little ones these days love technology but we can't afford to put an ipad in each childs hand for school. As much as I wish we could it is just not feasable for most schools. While a classroom might have 1 or 2 tablets that is just not enough for a class of 20+, so I have decided to fake it! For my four year olds this year we will be studying our word families on "tablets" printed on cardstock. I have used a tablet graphic copyrighted by scrappindoodles.com to create word family posters, worksheets and word work centers. I have also used this graphic to create a beginning sounds unit, multi-sensory ABC mats, and am currently working on EIOU word families and numbers. I have printed the first set of "tablets" and my 5 year old has not stopped playing with them. He even used a blank sheet that I have provided and made his own word family tablet:
It is a litle hard to see that he has written the name of each picture in pencil on the page as well. I can see that after my instruction with the original "tablet" and after playing with the word work "tablet" he is retaining and able to write some of the words for the -og word family. I can't wait to see what my class does with these this week! I have listed the -ack family as a freebie for you to try these "tablets" out for yourself and the rest of the units are listed and ready to go in my TPT store. -ACK WORD FAMILY TABLET FREEBIE LINK TPT STORE LINK Enjoy your first few weeks back to school, heres to a great year, Enjoy!
