More Rhyming Words

Without giving away the words, have children work in small groups to make letter cards for the following words: bell, fell, tell, well, yell, shell, smell, spell. Then tell children to use the cards to make rhyming words that end with the phonogram -ell. Explain that they can build words like a crossword puzzle (up-and-down or sideways). Challenge them to make the biggest word puzzle they can. Some groups may need to make more letter cards.
