Daily(ish) Decodable: More words that end with "...le"

Today we're going to keep working on words that end in “-le” like “turtle.” If your child needs more practice with this sound, start here. 


Now on to the lesson… 

Rhyme It Parents, read the following words out loud. Then ask your child which one does NOT rhyme with the others?

turtle jump hurtle ------------------------------- Say It Have your child point to and say the word "turtle" three times (remind them the "le" at the end makes the last consonant say "ull"): tur tle

tur tle


------------------------------- Blend It Have your child read these words: beetle










Read It

In honor of World Turtle Day, have your child read the passage below.

It's Turtle Day! 


Not all turtles are ninjas who eat pizza. Here are some real facts about turtles:


Fact 1: There have been turtles on this planet for over 200 million years.


Fact 2: Turtles have a hard shell. Some—but not all—turtles can tuck inside the shell to be extra safe.  


Fact 3: The turtle's shell grows with it—they never grow too big for it. 


Fact 4: Sea turtles lay eggs deep in the sand. When the eggs hatch, they have to dig out. After they come out, they hustle to the water.  


Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:

  1. What day is is today?

  2. Without looking back at the story, can you spell the word "turtle?"
