Introduction (10 minutes): #

Activity 1: Phonics Hopscotch

Draw a hopscotch grid on the floor with letters representing the “-at” family words (e.g., c, h, m, s, a, t).

Have children take turns hopping on the squares while saying the sound or word associated with each square they land on.

Activity 2: Pronunciation Bingo

Give each child a bingo card with “-at” family words or pictures.

Call out words or show flashcards with corresponding sounds.

Children mark the matching word or picture on their bingo cards.

The first child to get a row or column marked shouts “Bingo!” and wins.

Activity 3: Pronunciation Scavenger Hunt

Hide objects around the classroom or outdoor area representing “-at” family words (e.g., a cat figurine, a hat, a mat).

Give children a list of sounds to find and match with the corresponding objects.

Activity 4: Pronunciation Relay Race

Divide children into teams.

Set up a relay race course with cards with “-at” family words at the finish line.

Call out a word, and the first child in each team runs to the finish line, grabs the card with the matching word, and brings it back.

The team with the most correct cards wins.

Activity 5: Pronunciation Charades

Write down “-at” family words on separate pieces of paper.

Have one child pick a word and act it out without speaking while others guess the word based on their pronunciation.

Activity 6: Rhyme Time

Give children a set of words from the “-at” family and ask them to find rhyming words for each one.

Encourage children to say the words aloud to practice pronunciation and identify rhyming patterns.

Activity 7: Pronunciation Memory Game

Create pairs of cards with words from the “-at” family for the Memory Game.

Children take turns flipping two cards at a time to find matching pairs.

When a pair is found, the child must pronounce both words correctly to keep the match.

These activities make the lesson interactive, engaging, and effective in teaching pronunciation while focusing on the “-at” word family.
