During circle time, students will work with a selected word each day, finding the number of syllables, letters, and a word that rhymes with it.
Segment a word and have students blend it together. They will use their phonetic knowledge to sound it out, then count the number of letters in the word, and find a word that rhymes.
As the year goes on you can add to the difficulty by having them circle vowels/consonants.
Print at poster size and laminate so that you can easily use a dry erase marker with it.
