Subject: Reading: Word Recognition, Fluency, and Vocabulary Development
Lesson Title: Rhyme Time
IN Academic Standard K.1.10: Say rhyming words in response to an oral prompt
Objective: The students will recognize rhyming words.
Materials: A Giraffe and a Half
Note cards with rhyming words
Assessment: Informal Assessment -- students will be observed by the teacher as they come up with rhyming words from the story that has been read aloud.
"Grabbing their attention" -- Students will be asked to wiggle and giggle as they make their way to a spot in the classroom where the story will be read to them. This way they will be prepared to sit down and listen to the story.
1. Tell them that I will be reading a story and they will need to listen for rhyming words, while I am reading.
2. I will read the story, The Giraffe and a Half, being sure that the rhyming words are enunciated clearly.
3. After completing the story, I ask students to recall the rhyming words from the story.
4. Students will then be placed into teams of two.
5. I will use note cards with rhyming words on them from the story and have each player in the beginning of the line try to come up with a rhyming word for the card that is shown.
6. We will continue this until; at least, each child has had a turn.
Conclusion: Share with students that learning rhyming words, will help them to learn new words. They can also use rhyming words to practice writing and reading.
Review rhyming words from the story
Ask them what other rhyming words they know
This lesson can lead students into an activity in recognizing changes in spoken syllables. Start by giving an example to the whole class. (Example: Listen to the word bat and tell what word is left when you take the /b/ sound away. Tell what word is left when you take the /br/ sound away from the spoken word brother.) Then through the use of magnetic letters words can be placed on the board one at a time and then students will be asked to read the word. Then you will take, add, omit, or repeat a sound and ask students what word is then created.
