State and model the objective

Tell the children that you have prizes for each of them if they can prove they're a pro as they practice the /pr/ blend at the beginning of words.

Practice the skill with an activity

  • Explain to the children that today you are the prince/princess.
  • Give each child a chance to prove they’re a “pro” at something. It can be singing a song, doing a dance, jumping, etc.
  • If needed, use the picture/word cards to show the children example pictures of things they could be a “pro” at.
  • Once children prove they are a “pro,” give them a prize as the prince/princess.

Apply the skill

Read target words

  • Read the Prize from Prince (or princess) text together as a class.
  • Have the children take turns reading and underlining the /pr/ blends in the text.

Write target words

  • Give each child a copy of the Prize from Prince (or princess) worksheet and instruct the children to fill it out. Provide assistance as needed.
  • Answer key for the worksheet: thing the child is good at (e.g., jumping or singing); pro; prince; pro; prize; prize; actual prize (e.g., candy or pencil).
  • Instruct the children to circle each /pr/ blend written on their worksheet.
