Target Words:

  • fan
  • man
  • ran
  • plan

Materials:

  • Man picture cards (see below)

State and model the objective
Tell the children that they will hear a story about a man with a plan to make a fan, make their own fans and practice saying words that rhyme with fan.  

Practice the skill within an activity

Plan to Make a Fan

  • Read the Plan to Make a Fan target text to the children and ask them to listen for words that rhyme with fan.
  • Read the instruction part of the text to the children again, demonstrating how to make a fan.
  • Guide the children through the steps as they make their own fans (giving help as needed).
  • Read the text again, inviting the children to act it out with you.

Fan the Man

  • Make sure each child has a fan and a picture of a man (see below).
  • Tell the children to put the picture of a man in front of them on a table or the floor.
  • Have the children fan the picture and say, "Fan man, fan man!"
  • Give the children different variations on how to fan (e.g., fan the man fast, slow, high, low). 

Apply the skill

Read a predictable, repetitive target text to the children to support print awareness (see text below) 

  • Display the target text Plan to Make a Fan large enough for children to easily see.
  • Read the text to the children, pointing to each word in left to right sequence.
  • Read the text again and have the children point to each word in left to right sequence. 
  • Allow the children to shadow read by repeating predictable phrases while you read the text again.
  • Ask the children which words in the text rhyme with fan: ran, plan, man.

Practice rhyming

  • Produce words that rhyme with fan
    • Remind the children of the words they played with (fan, man, plan).
    • Tell them you can think of other words that rhyme with fan (ban, can, Dan).  
    • Ask each child to think of a word that rhymes with fan
    • If a child doesn't respond in a few seconds, give him/her an option:  
      • "How about pan?  Does pan rhyme with fan?" (Nod your head yes to let the child know that they rhyme) 
      • "Do plan and fan rhyme?" (Nod your head yes)
  • Recognize rhyming words 
    • Have the children repeat a set of 2 words (e.g. fan, man).
    • Ask the children to show you thumbs up if the words rhyme and thumbs down if the words do not rhyme.
    • Repeat with other sets of words: (e.g., can, Dan; ban, pan; ran, cow; plan, tan; van, star).
    • If children do not respond correctly, repeat the 2 words, emphasizing the ending sounds of the words.
