Lesson Plan

Target Words:

  • go
  • tow
  • snow 
  • blow
  • slow 
  • throw


  • Cotton balls
  • Tape

State and Model the Objective  
Tell the children that they will pretend to blow on snow as they recognize and produce words that rhyme with snow, such as blow, throw, go, and toe.

Literacy Activities 
Blow the Snow

  • Mark the start and finish of a racing area with two tape lines—one labelled “Go” and one labelled “Slow.”
  • Give each child a snowball (cotton ball).
  • Divide the children into three or four teams and have the teams line up behind the “Go” sign. 
  • Have the first child on each team set their snowball on the “Go” sign and blow it to the “Slow” sign. 
  • When the first child’s snowball reaches the “Slow” sign, the second child will begin blowing their snowball, then the third, etc. 
  • Meanwhile, lead the children in the following chant: “Go, go, go! Blow the snow!”  
  • The first team to get all their snow to the “Slow” sign wins.

More Practice
Produce rhyming words

  • Help the children recall words that rhyme with snow that they heard throughout the activity (e.g., go, slow, snow, blow).
  • Invite the children to think of more rhyming words (e.g., mow, crow, dough).
  • Let the children take turns throwing a “snowball” at a selected target as they say a word that rhymes with snow (support as needed).
