In the Meadow – Lesson 21

I can read words using onset rime.

Objective: To read words using onset rime. (RF.K.3)

Materials: plastic colored eggs, marker

Procedures: On the open edge of one half of an egg, write word families such as eep, ail, ay, etc. on the other half, write consonants, digraphs or blends such as j, sh, b, fr, etc. Put the egg together. Your child will focus on one word family and slowly turn the other half of the egg to line up the letters. She will read each word and say if it is a real word or a nonsense word. Do the same for the rest of the word families.

Conclusion: After all the words have been read, your child will choose five words to write on a chalkboard.
