Each of the 20 lessons begins with ten rhyming words and is designed to get your students talking. Students cut apart the cards to play with a partner. The first student reads aloud the two rhyming words on the card, and the second student either spells both words aloud or puts both words into one sentence. The Spelling Game improves visual awareness (as students must mentally “see” the letters as they spell them aloud). The Sentence Game improves synthesizing skills (the ability to combine two elements into something new).
In these 20 lessons, students will…
- identify multiple spellings for a given rhyme (e.g., the –art sound is spelled differently in “start” and “heart”)
-use homophones (him and hymn, ball and bawl, hay and hey)
-explore a variety of one-syllable (and a few two-syllable) words with blends, digraphs, clusters (spr-, ), silent letters (kn-), multiple spellings for long vowels (o, oa, oh, ow, oe), and more
