Icky Insect Is In Icky Sticky Ink
Practice the strategy of letter-sound correspondence when identifying the short vowel /i/ sound in written and spoken words. The teacher recites the tongue twister "Icky insect is in icky sticky ink," while listeners repeat. Letter boxes are then used to create words. The book Tin Man Fix It can be read in groups to reinforce the phonemes and blends rehearsed earlier.
