Topic: Rhyming Words
CLI Strategy: Statues
Students will be able to: use visual cues to recognize and remember rhyming words.
- Two students each hold a card (ie: 1 student has piña and another has niña).
- One student stands behind each card, as a silent, still statue of the word on the card.
- The teacher says a nonsensical word, and the class chooses which card/statue rhymes with the nonsensical word.
- Next, take away the cards, so that the students choose which statue rhymes with the nonsensical word.
- Finally, play without cards or statues as visual clues, as the students must do on Tango testing.
- What did we do today?
- What rhyming words do you remember?
To practice rhyming words with cards, you may introduce three cards, point to one, and have students make a statue to show which of the remaining two words rhymes with the first. ie: If your cards were cat, tree, and rat, and you pointed to cat: your students would choose to make a statue of rat to show their understanding that rat rhymes with cat.
