State and model the objective

Practice the skill within an activity

Collect -ut words from the King Tut hut

  • Divide the children into groups of two to six and give each group a game board.
  • Give each of the children an -ut game piece and have them each color their piece a different color.
  • Explain and demonstrate how to play the game:
    • Roll the die and move your game piece the specified number of spaces.
    • If you land on an –ut word, take an –ut word card from the King Tut hut and read it out loud.
    • The person with the most word cards at the end of the game gets to wear the King Tut crown for the next round. (In the case of a tie, have several crowns available.)    
  • Repeat the game as desired.
  • Ask the children what words in the game ended in -ut

Apply the skill

Identify, blend and manipulate sounds 

  • Let the children make a target word (e.g. tut) from letter cards (see below) and then let them make different words by changing either of the consonants or the vowel. 
    • Change the beginning sound(s): tut hut; nut  but; hut cut 
    • Change the vowel sound(s): but  bat; hut hit; nut net
    • Change the ending sound(s): but bun; cut cup; nut nun
  • For each of the words the children make, have them produce the sounds for each letter and then blend those sounds back into the word. 

Read target words in a text

  • Have the children underline the words that end in -ut in the King Tut target text (see below). 
  • Read the King Tut text to the children. 
  • Engage the children in reading the King Tut text simultaneously with you. 
  • Read the King Tut text again, fading support. 

Write about the activity using target words and phrases 

  • Display target words on a word wall (i.e., tut, nut, but
  • Refer the children to the word wall and have them write a sentence or two expressing ideas from a lesson activity or target text (e.g., King Tut lives in a hut).
