PREPARATION

1. Copy the poem "Hey Diddle, Diddle" onto poster-size chart paper.

2. Print the Rhyming Picture Cards and cut out the pictures. You might laminate the sheets before cutting to make the cards more durable for student use.

3. Create two word frames to isolate words on the poster-size chart paper. These word frames will help to show visually similar rhyming words.

4. Obtain a copy of the book Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball by Vicki Churchill and Charles Fuge to use for guided reading. If you are not able to locate a copy of this book, you may select another book that fits the reading level of your students and uses the words or word patterns learned during the lesson.

5. Gather other developmentally appropriate books or leveled readers for guided reading during the lesson.
