State and Model the Objective
Tell the children that they will hop and stop at a shop as they recognize and produce words that rhyme with shop, such as hop, pop, top, mop, and stop.
Set up shop
- To make a mop, attach several strands of yarn to one end of a craft stick.
- Have the children help identify the items (or graphics) that rhyme with shop and point out that they all end with -op.
- Talk about the items as you set up the shop (i.e., A mop can wipe up slop and glop. Be careful not to drop the pop.).
- Put up the "Stop at This Shop" sign near the shop.
Hop to the shop then stop
- Lead the children in hopping around the room until they get to the shop and you say "Stop!"
- Have the children read the "Stop at This Shop" sign then hop into the shop to look for things that rhyme with shop.
- Hold up items and ask questions like "Is this a top?" and "Does top rhyme with shop?"
- Invite the children to take turns asking a friend if they would like to buy something from the table that rhymes with shop (e.g., a top, a mop, a lollipop).
Listen for target words in a text
- Display the Stop at a Shop target text large enough for children to see.
- Read the text to the children, pointing to each word in left to right sequence, and emphasize the words that rhyme with shop.
- Invite the children to repeat words that rhyme with shop with you as you read it again.
- Help the children recall words they heard in the text that rhyme with shop.
Produce words that rhyme with shop
- Remind the children of the words they heard that rhyme with shop (hop, pop, mop).
- Ask each child to think of a word that rhymes with shop (support as needed).
Recognize rhyming words
- Have the children repeat a set of 2 words (e.g. shop, hop).
- Ask the children to hop if the words rhyme and stand still if they do not rhyme (support as needed).
- Repeat with other sets of words: (e.g., stop, drop; plop, flop; tan, mop; crop, cat; pop, top).
