Substitute a Word

Substitute a Word

Create a simple sentence on a sentence strip (for example, “Mary had a little lamb.”) Display it, if possible in a pocket chart, and read it with the child several times. You read it, then you both read it together, then the child reads it. Next, substitute a new word (“Mary had a little dog.”) Cover all but the first letter of the new word with a sticky note. Have the child read the sentence and use the first letter to predict what the word will say. Talk about how knowing the first letter in the word helped them predict what the word would say.
