Fidgety Fish by Ruth Galloway

Early Literacy Aside--Explain:  Today we are focusing on phonological awareness, the early literacy skill that includes rhyming and helps children hear parts of words. This activity will help children later sound out words as they learn to read.Early Literacy Aside--Example: This story, Fidgety Fish by Ruth Galloway, has rhyming and non-rhyming segments. We'll see words that rhyme and words that don't. Rhyming breaks words into smaller parts. Words that sound like the sounds they make also support phonological awareness. This is called onomatopoeia.
