Practice the skill within an activity

Get set to go on a jet using actions and large motor gestures

  • Read the target text Get Set to Go on a Jet (see below), then set up an area of the room with chairs (optional) to be a pretend jet. Tell the children they will prepare to take a trip on the jet.
    • Get ready for a trip on a jet (pack a suitcase).
    • Get to the jet (drive to the airport).
    • Get on the jet (board the airplane).
    • Ready, set, go (fasten seatbelt and lean back as the jet takes off).
    • Let the jet get wet (using a spray bottle to get the jet wet in pretend rain).

Get a jet into a net

  • Fold paper airplanes to use as jets.
  • Let the children write the word jet on their paper airplane.
  • Hold a net over blue paper and pretend the paper is water.
  • Ask the children if they bet their jet will get in the net or get wet (i.e. miss the net and fall on the blue paper).
  • Have the children clap and chant, “Get the jet into the net!” as they take turns throwing their jets into the net.
  • Ask, “Did your jet get into the net yet or did your jet get wet?” and have the children respond, “My jet got in the net,” or “My jet got wet”.
  • Let the children write a new –et word on their jet and try again to get the jet into the net.

Apply the skill

Identify, blend and manipulate sounds

  • Make –et words and get the words into a net.
  • Place letter cards in a net and give the children a card with the –et ending (see below).
  • Let children each get a letter card from the net to blend with their –et card to make a word.
  • Have the children paperclip the letters of the word together.
  • Let the children take turns trying to get their –et word in the net, saying “Get the word____ (get, pet, set, net, etc.) in the net”.
  • With word blending cards (see below), have the children make new words by changing the vowel or either of the consonants:
    • pet vet, met wet, get let, set yet
    • pet pen, let led, met → men, jet  Jen
    • vet vat, get got, set sit, pet pat

Read target words in a text (see below)

  • Read the target text Ready, Set! Go on a Jet! together with the children.
  • Read the target text again, fading support.
  • Have the children underline the words that end in –et.
  • Repeat with the target text Get the Jet in the Net.

Write about the activity using target words/patterns

  • Play a “pass the jet” game with the children.
    • Have the children sit in a circle and take turns passing a paper jet (see below).
    • As children get the jet, have them say a new word that ends in –et.
    • Write each new word on the board. 
    • Repeat the game, but this time, have children write each word on the paper jet.
  • Give the children a whiteboard and have them write words from dictation, changing one or two letters each time to make a new word: jet, yet, set, sit, pit, pet, pen, men, man, mat, met, let, leg, log, dog, dig, big, bit, bet, net, nut.
