Switch That Sound!
Students will be able to add or change a letter in a one syllable word to make a new word.
- Review word families with your students. You can tell them that a word family is a group of words that end with the same sound but start with different letters.
- Show examples of word families to tap into students’ prior knowledge (e.g. a word family chart created in a previous lesson).
- Ask your students, “Why do you think we learn about word families?” Possible answers might include to spell more words, to help us read, etc.
