Target Words:

  • bread
  • spread
  • red
  • fed

Materials:

  • Slices of bread - 1/2 slice for each child
  • Red jam

State and model the objective

Tell the children that they are going to spread something red on a piece of bread and practice saying words that rhyme with bread.

Practice the skill within an activity

Ask the children to listen for words that rhyme with bread while you talk about spreading red jam on bread as suggested below:

Say: Suggested action:
Have you ever had bread? Hold up a piece at the front of the classroom.
Sometimes I like to spread red jam on my bread.  Show the children the red jam you are going to spread on your bread.
Do you like to spread red jam on your bread? Let's spread something red on the bread! Select a child to help spread the jam on the bread while the children chant, "Spread, spread, spread on the bread!"
Who is ready to be fed? Let's give him/her some bread! Choose a child to eat the bread while the other children chant, "____ is fed, ____ is fed!"
Now that we fed ____ bread with something red, let's all eat our own bread spread with something red! Give the rest of the children a 1/2 slice of bread. Repeat instruction above, allowing them to spread jam on and eat their bread. 
  • Ask the children to tell you the words they heard in the activity that rhyme with bread: red, spread, fed.

Apply the skill

Practice rhyming

  • Recognize rhyming words 
    • Have the children repeat a set of 2 words (e.g. bread, spread).
    • 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., bed, said; head, fed; tread, cat; led, red; pled, wed; stead, truck; Ted, dread).
    • If children do not respond correctly, repeat the 2 words, emphasizing the ending sounds of the words.  

Practice blending and segmenting sounds in words

  • Make a rhyming word sandwich
    • Tell the children that they will practice saying words that rhyme with bread by pretending they are making a sandwich.
      • segment sounds: say /r/ (hold out right hand), say /ed/ (hold out left hand)
      • blend sounds: clap hands together like you put together two slices of bread and say bread to blend the sounds into the whole word.
      • Repeat with other words that rhyme with bread (e.g. red, bed, said, led, fed, etc.)
