  • Write the words fat, cat, and hat on the board.
  • Ask students to “echo read" the words after you say them.
  • Have students figure out what is similar within the three words. If help is needed, underline the "at" portion of each word.
  • Once students identify that all the words have a similar ending sound, explain that this similarity means that the words rhyme. Go on to explain that since all these words have the same ending sound that they belong to the same word family.
