There are many ways to teach different word families. One week during last termI focussed on “tion” words. I chose this word family as it often misspelled by students and I felt that my Grade Two class would benefit from a little revision of this tricky collection of words.

Technology is a big part of my daily program so I usually begin my lessons and introductions by finding a good website or tool on the IWB. I used this powerpoint demonstration to model how ‘tion’ words are spelled.



Students then completed this activity sheet which I made.

I concluded the lesson playing this fun Hangman game using ‘tion’ words.



What strategies do you implement to help student learn different word families?
