Late Kate story 

Say: Suggested Action/Phrases:
Kate was asked on a play date to go and skate. Show the picture of Kate (see below)
Kate was going to be late because she couldn't find her skate!  
She decided to look for her skate in the crate. Look into the crate/box
Kate didn't find her skate, but she did find a plate. Pull the plate out of the crate/box.
But Kate can't skate on a plate! Toss the plate off to the side.
Poor Kate was going to be late for her play date because she couldn't find her skate! Have the children pretend to be sad. 
Kate hates to be late! She must look harder for her skate! Have the children say, "Kate don't be late! Find your skate!"
Kate looked in her crate and found her skate! Have the children say, "Silly Kate, your skate was in the crate!"
The skate must have been hiding under the plate. Hold up the skate.
Now Kate will not be late for her play date.  Hold the skate next to Kate. 
  • Ask the children to share the words they heard in the story that rhyme with late
  • Repeat the story as many times as desired.

Apply the skill

Practice rhyming

  • Produce words that rhyme with late
    • Remind the children of the words they played with (late, crate, skate, plate).
    • Tell them you can think of other words that rhyme with late (plate, date, bait, fate).  
    • Ask each child to think of a word that rhymes with late. 
    • If a child doesn't respond in a few seconds, give him/her an option:  
      • "How about wait?  Does wait rhyme with late?" (Nod your head yes to let the child know that they rhyme) 
      • "Do rate and late rhyme?" (Nod your head yes)
  • Recognize rhyming words 
    • Have the children repeat a set of 2 words (e.g. late, skate).
    • Ask the children to put their thumbs up if the words rhyme and thumbs down if the words do not rhyme.
    • Repeat with other sets of words: (e.g., date, crate; gate, Kate; mate, duck; bait, wait; plate, trait; late, truck; skate, hate).
    • If children do not respond correctly, repeat the 2 words, emphasizing the ending sounds of the words.
