  • did
  • hid

Materials:

  • Six lids of different colors and sizes
  • -id ending word cards
  • Letter cards 

Overview
The children will play a game called A Kid Slid a Lid as they add sounds to the -id ending to make words such as lid, slid, kid, and skid

Literacy Activities
Skid a lid

  • Place the -id card at the end of a table.
  • Label the different lids with beginning sounds such as k, l, d, h, sl, or sk.
  • Show the children how to skid a lid by sliding it across a flat surface.
  • Have each child pick a beginning letter lid to skid. 
  • Have children take turns trying to skid different lids to the -id card at the end of the table. 
  • When a lid makes it to the -id card, help children blend the beginning sound written on the lid with the -id ending to form a word. 

More Practice
Segment and blend words using letter cards 

  • Use the word blending cards to help the children create -id words.
  • Help the children read the words by saying the beginning sound(s) and -id ending separately, before blending the whole word together (e.g., k + id = kid). 
  • Have the children tape the word blending cards together when they make an -id word.

Write about the activity using target words

  • Give each child a paper and pencil and have the children write words from dictation: lid, slid, kid, skid, did, hid.
  • Emphasize the process of blending the beginning sound(s) with the -id ending to spell each word.
  • Help the children write a sentence with -id words about something they could do with a lid (e.g. I slid the lid. I can skid a lid. I hid a lid.).
