Color the Chunk for Long i Word Families
These pages include EIGHT different long i word families: -ice, -ide, -ike, -ime, -ine, -ight, -ind, and -y.
Words with a single beginning letter, such as time, are mixed in with words that include blends or digraphs, such as grime and prime on each page.
Some of the pages even have two syllable words under the line on the page. Learners may need extra help dividing the word into two syllables, so be prepared to provide some extra support there.
Just like all our other pages, learners color in the long vowel word family chunk in each word. Learners can use crayon, marker, or older readers may prefer a highlighter.
After coloring them all in, learners use those chunks to read the words. I love how the chunks “pop” out when they are colored in. This is such a great visual cue for struggling learners!
Remember that you can write a little green dot at the beginning of the word to remind learners to start reading on the left side.
You can even extend the activity, and challenge learners who are ready, by asking them to write sentences on the back of the page with some of the words.

These pages are great review for my first grader. I like to read a book that focuses on the long i sound first, then follow up with these color chunk pages. Thanks for sharing!
What a great idea. I love how quick and simple these pages are as a before or after reading activity!

amazing resources-thank you for all of your freebies also!!!
You’re welcome! 🙂
I love these! The -ike page has “spike” written twice. My student asked me if there are two different meanings.
Thanks! I’ll work on getting that fixed.
