Preschoolers hear and play with sounds in words through singing and by playing rhyming games.
What You Need:
- Popular Pal cut-out (See Florida Center for Reading Research and Florida DOE for template)
- Crayons or markers
- *Optional: Items for decorating (e.g., yarn for hair, googly eyes, buttons, etc.)
What To Do:
- Help your child cut out the Popular Pal cut-out found in this packet.
- Let her decorate it using crayons or optional decorative items.
- Help her come up with an alliterative name phrase in which the first sound is the same (e.g., “Happy Holly”). You may also use “likes” to extend the alliteration (e.g., “Happy Holly likes hamsters.”).
- Write the name phrase on a strip of paper and display it with the decorated cut out.
