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

Differentiate/Extend Lesson:
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.
