Teaching Tips

Before singing the song, introduce the target word family to children. First, point to the letters in the phonogram and say its sound aloud. Have children repeat the sound of the phonogram after you. Then explain that the song will have many words that end with that sound. Try working with the group to list some words from the word family and have them predict which might be in the song, judging by its title!
