More Rhyming Words

To reinforce the long a sound spelled with the vowel-consonant-e pattern, have children fill the pockets of an apron with words that end with the phonogram -ape. Bring in an apron with several pockets (or make one out of construction paper) and display it in the Learning Center. Children can work alone or in small groups writing -ape words on index cards or pieces of light-colored construction paper. Children should read their words to a friend before they add their word cards to the apron.
