Onset and Rime - Chunking
Start by asking children who are wearing "a" and "t" to stand. What does that say? Ask "m" to stand in front of "at." What does that say? Tell "m" to go away and have "r" stand in front of "at." Have children suggest other letters to stand in front of "at." Reinforce other word families with this strategy.
