Learning Objectives

Introduction (5 minutes)

  • Ask the students if they know any words that rhyme with the words listed.
  • Categorize the words according to their consonant endings.

Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)

  • Play hangman as a class or have 2 groups compete against each other.
