Now, let’s dive into the lesson!

I. Introduction

As mentioned earlier, the IG word family consists of words that end with “ig” and make the “ihg” sound. This is an important word family to learn because it helps children recognize patterns in language and improves their reading skills.

II. Words in the IG Word Family

Some examples of words in the IG word family include “big,” “pig,” “wig,” “fig,” and “dig.” When teaching these words to your child, demonstrate how to sound out each letter slowly and then blend them together to create the word. This technique helps build phonemic awareness and lays the foundation for reading fluency.

III. Fun Activities to Teach IG Word Family

To help reinforce the IG word family, here are some fun activities that parents and teachers can do with their children:

  • Fine motor activities: Provide children with scissors and glue sticks and have them cut out pictures of objects that end in “ig” and paste them onto a piece of paper. This helps improve their fine motor skills and allows them to visually connect the word with its ending sound.
  • Word-building activities: Use letter blocks or magnets to create words in the IG word family. Start with simple three-letter words like “big” and gradually increase the difficulty as your child becomes more confident.
  • Rhyming games: Play rhyming games with your child and encourage them to come up with words that rhyme with “big” or “pig.” This is a fun and interactive way to reinforce the IG word family while also building vocabulary.
