Daily(ish) Decodable: Words like "row" and "snow"

Today we’re going to work on the "-ow" sound in words like "show" and "low." If your child needs more practice with this sound, start here.


Note also that today's "Read It" section is part II of a nursery rhyme. Part I is 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?

black brown down ------------------------------- Say It Have your child point to the word "low" 3 times as they read it in a deep (low) voice: low



------------------------------- Blend It Have your child read these words: row, row, row










Read It Have your child read the passage below:


{This is part 2. Find part 1 here.} 


O was an owner, who owned most of the town

P was a parent, who never sat down

Q was a queen, who had a silk slip

R was a robber, who had a bad grip

S was a singer, who sang all day long

T was a tinker, and mended a gong

U was an undertaker, who dug in the dirt

V was a vendor, who sold all himself

W was a watchman, who blocked the door

X needed extra, and so became poor

Y was a yam, that did not go to school

Z was zany, a poor harmless fool


Explain It

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

  1. What happened to the parent in the story?

  2. Who was the "S" in the poem, and what did they do?
