This year I discovered the amazing word family poster set from Carson Dellosa. I laminated all of the posters and used a dry erase marker to write the words (this way I can just erase and reuse next year). The key to these posters being useful is actually writing the words on them WITH the kids. They came up with the words so they know they are there and use them when writing. Definitely among the best $20 I've spent on my classroom.
