  • Ask the children to listen for words that rhyme with car while they pretend to go on a car ride as outlined below:
Say: Suggested Actions:
Let's make a car so we can go far.  Set up groups of 4-6 chairs to be a pretend car. 
Let's make a Star Car! Take a star from the jar. Put a star on the car.  Have children decorate the chairs with stars. Each time a star is placed on a chair, say together, "A star for the car."
Our Star Car is ready. Get in the Star Car.  Point to the chairs, and have children take a seat. 
Buckle up in the Star Car. Shall we go far? I'll start the car. We'll drive far in the Star Car.  Pretend to buckle up and start the engine. Have children make the -ar sound, pretending to be the car. 
The car is going far. Let's sing in the car.  Sing the We are in a Big Star Car song together. 
Oh look, it's getting dark! Can you see the star? We went far in our Star Car. Point toward the large star at the other end of the room. 
  • Help the children recall and say the words that rhyme with car that they heard during the activity: far, car, jar, are.
