More Rhyming Words
To reinforce the short u sound, have children work independently or in small groups to make paper airplanes decorated with words with the -ust phonogram (bust, dust, just, must, rust, crust, etc.). Children should list their -ust words on a separate piece of paper, then copy them onto their airplanes. You may want to have a contest to see which -ust plane can fly the farthest.
