Students will be able to recognise and produce simple rhymes.

The adjustment to the whole group lesson is a modification to differentiate for children who are English learners.

(5 minutes)
  • Use a song or rhyme to gather children at your group area.
  • Tell students that today they're going to make rhymes with word pairs.
  • Let students know that today they will be practising rhymes with a book.
(10 minutes)
  • Ask your students if they can name a rhyming pair. Remind students that rhyming words have the same ending sound. Provide examples if necessary.
  • Tell your students you will be reading a book with many rhyming words in it. Ask them to listen carefully and identify as many rhyming pairs as they can.
  • Show students the cover of Hop on Pop. Tell students that Dr. Seuss is an author who is famous for his books that are full of rhyming words.
  • Read Hop on Pop.
(5 minutes)
  • Tell students that they will be completing a rhyming pair and that they can hop or pop when they come up with a correct rhyming word.
  • Have students provide examples of rhyming pairs that they remember from the book.
  • When a student comes up with a rhyming word, pop a bubble on the bubble wrap.
  • Tell students that now it's their turn.
(5 minutes)
  • This is where you can guide the students through either jumping on bubble wrap on the floor or using their fingers to pop individual bubbles after providing a rhyming word to complete a rhyming pair.

Enrichment:Some beginning readers may recognise simple word family CVC words such as "cat." These students can read a word on a card and orally provide a rhyming word.

Support:Some students may benefit from just "playing" with language, such as saying "hop and pop" while jumping on the bubble wrap.

(5 minutes)
  • Have your students orally complete rhyme pairs or have them complete the Rhyme Connection #2 worksheet.
(5 minutes)
  • Ask your students to recall rhyming pairs from Hop on Pop. Write the pairs on the board as students say them.
