  • seat
  • treat
  • sweet

  • Sweet treats (e.g., cookies, apple slices, cereal)

State and model the objective
Tell the children that they will enjoy a sweet treat while they practice saying words that rhyme with treat.

 Practice the skill within an activity

Take a seat and get a treat

  • Tell the children, "You must take a seat if you want a treat!"
  • Give each child a treat to eat. 
  • As each child is handed his or her treat, have the class say, "(Name of child) will eat a sweet treat!"
  • As the children eat their sweet treats, use words that rhyme with treat to talk about the activity, like:
    • What kind of sweet treat would you like to eat?
    • Be neat while you eat your sweet treat.
    • Don't let the sweet treat fall on your feet!
  • When they are done eating their treat, ask the children to tell you words they heard that rhyme with treat: seat, treat, sweet, neat, eat, feet.

Treat guessing game

  • Give each child a piece of paper and have them draw a picture of their favorite treat to eat, suggesting it could be meat, or wheat or something sweet.
  • When their drawings are finished, have the children turn their pictures face down so you can try to guess their favorite treat.
  • Choose a child and ask two questions that include words that rhyme with treat to see if you can guess the treat they drew:
    • Is your favorite treat meat?
    • Is your favorite treat made with wheat?
    • Is your favorite treat something sweet?
  • When you have asked your two questions, ask the child to say, "The treat that I love to eat is ____" to tell you what treat they drew.
  • Review with the children the words that rhyme with treat from the activity: treat, meat, sweet, eat.

Apply the skill

Practice rhyming

  • Produce words that rhyme with treat
  • Remind the children of the words they played with (treat, sweet, eat).
  • Tell them you can think of other words that rhyme with treat (feet, neat, meat).  
  • Ask each child to think of a word that rhymes with treat. 
  • If a child doesn't respond in a few seconds, give him/her an option:  
    • "How about heat?  Does heat rhyme with treat?" (Nod your head yes to let the child know that they rhyme) 
    • "Do beat and treat rhyme?" (Nod your head yes)

Practice blending and segmenting sounds in words

  • March and say the sounds in words 
    • Tell the children that they will practice saying words that rhyme with treat in a fun way.
    • Have the children march and say the beginning and ending sound of the word treat:
      • segment sounds: say /tr/ (march right), say /eat/ (march left)
      • blend sounds: jump with both feet and say treat to blend the sounds into the whole word
      • Repeat with other words that rhyme with treat (e.g., beat, meat, feet, neat, seat)
