Daily(ish) Decodable: The "-ane" sound

Today we’re going to work on “-ane” words like “plane” or “Jane." If your child needs a refresher on how the "Magic E" works at the end of words, I'd recommend starting here.

Now on to today's lesson...

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

helicopter plane Jane ------------------------------- Say It Have your child point to the sound and say it 3 times: ...ane



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









Read It Have your child read the passage below:

Crane Facts

Fact 1: Cranes are big birds with long legs and necks.

Fact 2: Cranes are the tallest flying birds.

Fact 3: Cranes munch on seeds, nuts, worms, fish eggs, or whatever they can find.

Fact 4: Most cranes make nests in shallow wetlands.

Fact 5: When cranes find a mate, they will often stay together forever.

Fact 6: Most cranes migrate and fly long distances when it turns cold. But others do not migrate at all. ------------------------------- Explain It

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

  1. What did you learn about cranes?

  2. What does the word "migrate" mean? Do all birds migrate?
