Recognize words that rhyme with light (e.g., "Do light and sight rhyme?") and produce rhyme words (e.g., "Think of a word that rhymes with light.").
The children will play a night light freeze game as they recognize and produce words that rhyme with light, such as night and bright.
- Cover natural light and dim the lights.
- Invite the children to find a spot in the room they’ll stay for the whole game.
- Turn on the flashlight and have the children say, “Light!” and run, dance, or wiggle in place.
- When you turn off the flashlight, have the children say, “Night!” and freeze in silence.
- Repeat as many times as desired, allowing the children to take turns turning the flashlight on and off.
- Read the following phrases to the children, having them open and close their hands to flash bright like a star each time they hear a word that rhymes with light:
- What a sight! The light is bright!
- There is no light at night!
- The light makes the night bright.
- Repeat with other sentences you think of.
