This Introduce First Sound Segmenting lesson plan also includes:
Mico is back, and he's ready to test your scholars in initial sounds in single-syllable words. Using a puppet and the picture cards provided (these are great and in full-color), play a game with pre-readers. Hold up three picture cards and have Mico say the initial sound of one of them. Which card is he thinking of? Scholars identify the card then segment the word into onset and rime. Once they get more proficient at this, have them try with four or five cards.
