  • gold
  • glasses
  • guitar
  • goat
  • goldfish
     

Materials:

  • Green and yellow markers 
  • Glasses frame graphics (see below)
  • Gold glitter (optional)

State and model the objective
Tell the children they will wear green and gold glasses while they listen for words beginning with the hard g (/g/) sound, such as grandma, goat, guitar, grapes, and ghost.

Practice the skill within an activity
Play with /g/ actions and green glasses

  • Before the activity, cut out the glasses frame graphics (see below). 
  • Give each child the glasses frame graphics to color green and gold (gold glitter can be added if desired), and tape them together, with support as needed. 
  • Have the children put on their green and gold glasses and say to their neighbors, “You look great in green and gold glasses”. 
  • Invite the children to do actions that start with the /g/ sound while everyone wears their green and gold glasses (emphasize the /g/ sound), such as:
    • Pretend to be grandmas and grandpas.
    • Pretend to growl like gorillas.
    • Pretend to go fishing for goldfish.
    • Pretend to gallop like goats.
    • Pretend to play guitars.
    • Pretend to grab gumdrops and grapes.
    • Pretend to be goofy ghosts. 
  • While doing the actions, have the children narrate what they are doing (e.g., “We are playing guitars in our green and gold glasses.”).

Apply the skill
Identify the target sound

  • Ask the children to tell you different actions from the activity, and point out the words starting with the hard g (/g/) sound (i.e., gallop, goats, grab, gumdrops, grapes). 
  • Put the /g/ words into sentences (e.g., We galloped like goats in our green and gold glasses. We grabbed gumdrops and grapes in our green and gold glasses.), emphasizing the /g/ sound, and have the children wave their green and gold glasses in the air when they hear the /g/ sound.
