Roy the Zebra: Words that Rhyme

Are your students mixing up the sounds for short /i/ with the short /e/? Do your students get motivated whenever they are allowed to use electronic devices? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, let the animated character named Roy the Zebra join your students. Roy the Zebra will help your students improve their phonemic awareness and decoding skills as they review short vowel sounds in the context of rhyming word families. When given a phonetic rule, students will drag a word that matches the rule provided. For each correct answer, students will enjoy seeing an animated rhino roller skate down a series of hills.
