  • lip
  • chip
  • drip
  • grip

Materials:

  • Chips  
  • Dip in small bowls  
  • Cups 
  • Word blending cards 

Overview
The children will dip a chip and take a sip as they add sounds to the -ip ending to make words such as dip, sip, rip, chip, and tip

Literacy Activities
Dip chips in dip

  • Pass out chips and dip in small bowls, and water in cups.
  • Teach the children the following instructions on how to eat chips and dip, and have them repeat the instructions as they follow them.
    • Grip your chip.
    • Pick up a chip.
    • Dip the tip of your chip.
    • Put the chip to your lip. 
    • Eat the chip.
    • Take a sip from your cup. 
    • Take another sip and lick your lips.
  • Help the children make a list of other -ip words by blending different sounds with the -ip ending (e.g., hip, lip, nip, rip, tip, zip).

More Practice
Identify, blend and manipulate sounds

  • Have children blend individual sounds into words by tapping their head (beginning sound) and toes (-ip sound) then have them clap to say the whole word.
    • d ip = dip
    • s ip = sip
    • t ip = tip
    • r ip = rip
  • With word blending cards, have the children make new words by changing the vowel or either of the consonants:
    • Change the beginning sound: dip → sip; sip → tip; tip → rip
    • Change the ending sound: dip → did; sip → sit; rip → rib
    • Change the middle sound: sip → sap; rip → rap; tip → tap

Materials

  • Chip memory cards
  • Small bowl

Activity: Chip and Dip

  • Look at the memory cards with your child and identify and match the words to the pictures.
  • Shuffle the word cards then the picture cards, and place the cards face down on the table in two rows (a row of words and a row of pictures).
  • Take turns turning over two cards, one from the row of words and one from the row of pictures, trying to find the match. 
  • Encourage your child to read the word on each card he or she turns over, even if the match is incorrect.
  • When a correct match is found, shout "Chip and Dip!" 
  • Dip the chip memory cards into the pretend chip dip bowl, and then pretend to eat them like chips.
  • The game ends when all matches have been found. 
  • When the game is over, read all the chip memory cards with your child, emphasizing the process of blending the beginning sound and -ip ending to read the word (e.g., /ch/-ip = chip). 
  • Have your child make new -ip words by blending different sounds with the -ip ending (e.g., hip, lip, nip, rip, tip, zip).
