Modelled

  1. Introduce the learning intention by playing a quick rhyming game with students. This can be as simple as you saying a word and students calling out a corresponding rhyming word.

  2. Explicitly explain to your students that rhyming words all sound the same, but they aren’t always spelt the same. Share a few examples on the board, for all your students to see (eg. moon/soon, door/four). This is important for when students are trying to decode new words during reading or writing.
