Awareness material or experiences
Tog the Dog,
by Hawkins & Hawkins, (Putnam, 1986)
After reading the awareness selection, together with the students, generate a list of words that end with "og".
Each student takes the initial consonant from their name and uses it as an onset for the rime "og". For example, Jennifer would generate "jog".
Odd word out. Say a group of three words (i.e. dog, map, log) and the student repeats the word that does not belong because it doesn’t end in "og".
Make a spinner with the consonant letters that make a word with the rime "og". The student spins and identifies the word with "og".
The teacher gives a definition and the student writes/finds/states the "og" word.
Teacher: a slow run
Teacher: an early morning mist
