Learning Exercise: Hey Diddle, Diddle!
Teaching Target: *Identify individual sounds of words, phonemes, in “sound boxes” and that the visual similarity of an ending cluster of letters in known words. Students must decode a new word. It may rhyme if the ending cluster is the same visually. Sound boxes will help increase students’ visual sensitivity to classify phonemes. *Helping students identify and manipulate phonemes increases phonemic awareness.

Session 3 Collaborative Small-Group Work Assign students into small groups of four and distribute a set of Rhyming Cards to each group. Tell students that they are expected to work together in order to find a pair of pictures that rhyme. While students are in small groups, move around the room and do an informal assessment as to how they recognize rhyming pictures. This assessment will shape future instruction for teaching skills during small group. As students identify rhyming words, ask them to come up and try out their pairs in context or the poem. As you are working in small groups, have other groups practice making new words that have visually similar letter cluster ending words. Extension Have students access the interactive Word Family Sort for additional material. Students sort short-vowel words into word families, using “Word Sorts for Beginning and Struggling Readers”
