Reason for this tutorial

Thanks for taking time to review this tutorial on the -at word family. I am currently enrolled in a phonics class through the Notre Dame College of Ohio and word study and related lessons and activities are obviously a huge part of the class. This was a great way for me to store some resources and plan out some activities for a future kindergarten class.
