Target Words:

  • lid
  • slid
  • kid
  • skid
  • did
  • hid

Materials:

  • 6 lids of different colors and sizes
  • Large -id Card (see below)
  • Letter Cards for blending and manipulating words (see below)

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

Practice the skill within an activity

Skid a lid

  • Before the activity, 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 beginning-letter 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. 

Apply the skill (choose from the following)

Segment and blend words using letter cards (see below)

  • 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 reading 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. I got rid of my lid).
