This was a project I saw in another kindergarten in my hallway – Mrs. McMahon. She had several word family art projects that you will see over the next two weeks. I think this is such a great way to reinforce the word families. I also used a reader from Carla’s Corner ake Word Family Reader. This site has a treasure trove of emergent readers.
STEP ONE: Draw a cake on a 9 x 12 construction paper. I make three rectangles to make my cake.
STEP TWO: My favorite part of the cake is the frosting! So add frosting. I use half circles to create frosting.
STEP THREE: Since this is all about the “ake” word family – write “ake” on the cake!
STEP FOUR: Now for the fun! Draw snakes to write some “ake” words on. I like to make a large S to form my snakes.
