Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling(10 minutes)
- Ask your students if they can name a rhyming pair. Remind students that rhyming words have the same ending sound. Provide examples if necessary.
- Tell your students you will be reading a book with many rhyming words in it. Ask them to listen carefully and identify as many rhyming pairs as they can.

- Read Hop on Pop.
- Pair students up with another student to come up with a rhyming word pair.

Guided Practice(5 minutes)
- Tell students that they will be completing a rhyming pair and that they can hop or pop when they come up with a correct rhyming word.
- Have students provide examples of rhyming pairs that they remember from the book.
- When a student comes up with a rhyming word, pop a bubble on the bubble wrap.
- Tell students that now it's their turn.
- Write or provide images of rhyming pairs found in the text for students to reference.
- Provide additional words for students to use when coming up with new rhyming word pairs (e.g. pan, man).
Independent working time(5 minutes)
- This is where you can guide the students through either jumping on bubble wrap on the floor or using their fingers to pop individual bubbles after providing a rhyming word to complete a rhyming pair.
- Provide additional practice by having students complete an activity worksheet, or utilize picture cards to further their understanding and knowledge of rhyming word pairs.
- Have students work with partners to come up with rhyming word pairs.
- Some students may benefit from just "playing" with language, such as saying "hop and pop" while jumping on the bubble wrap.
