Daily(ish) Decodable: The "-ed" sound, part 2

Today we're going to keep working on the “-ed” sound at the end of words. This one is slightly trickier, but see here if your child needs a refresher. 


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?

made played basketball ------------------------------- Say It Have your child point to the word "canned" and say it three times (it should sound like the word "candy" without the "y" at the end): canned



------------------------------- Blend It Explain to your child that in many cases, the “ed” combination at the end of a word just makes a “d” sound. Then have them read these words: planned










Read It

Have your child read the passage below.

Yesterday, Part Two


It rained all day yesterday, so I stayed indoors with my brother Joseph. Here is a list of what we did:

  • We finished the puzzle we had started over the weekend. Then we wrecked it and cleaned up our mess.

  • We mailed letters to Grandma and Grandpa.

  • We skinned some yams and then watched Mom boil them.

Despite the rain, we played and made it fun. It worked out okay. 


Explain It

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

  1. Why did the author stay indoors yesterday?

  2. Who did the author play with?
