Materials:

  • Goop (e.g., pudding, Jell-O or water mixed with cornstarch or flour)

State and model the objective
Tell the children that they will scoop goop and hear and say words that rhyme with scoop (such as goop, loop, group, swoop, droop, and hoop). 

Practice the skill within an activity 

Scoop goop

  • Prepare "goop" (e.g., as pudding, Jell-O or water mixed with cornstarch or flour) before the activity.
  • Have the children surround a large bowl of "goop."
  • Teach the children the Scoop song (see target text below), and have them perform the corresponding actions with the song as it is sung.
  • Tell the children to swoop their scoop (spoon) to the bowl and scoop some goop up with the scoop.
  • Let the goop droop back into the large bowl in the center.
  • Have the children sing the song with you, emphasizing the –oop words as they are sung.
  • Give each of the children the opportunity to swoop, scoop, and droop some goop.
  • Ask the children what words they heard in the activity that rhyme with scoop. 

Apply the skill

Practice rhyming 

  • Produce words that rhyme with scoop 
    • Remind the children of the words they played with (goop, scoop, droop, swoop). 
    • Tell them you can think of other words that rhyme with scoop (hoop, stoop, soup). 
    • Ask each child to think of a word that rhymes with scoop. 
    • If a child doesn't respond in a few seconds, give him/her an option: 
      • "How about goop? Does goop rhyme with scoop?" (Nod your head yes to let the child know that they rhyme) 
      • "Do droop and scoop rhyme?" (Nod your head yes)
  • Recognize rhyming words 
    • Have the children repeat a set of 2 words (e.g. droop, scoop). 
    • 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., goop, swoop; group, stoop; soup, bird; stoop, dog). 
    • If children do not respond correctly, repeat the 2 words, emphasizing the ending sounds of the words.
