- Dip in small bowls
- Word blending cards
State and Model the Objective
Tell the children that they 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.
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).
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
SEEL At Home
Blend a beginning consonant or consonant blend with -ip to make words such as dip, tip, sip, and chip.

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).
