lesson image

Instructions: Read the Mother Goose poem, 'A Little Sister.' The instructor pronounces the dashed words phonetically and asks children to call out the words.

I have a little sister;

they c-a-ll her P-ee-p, Peep.

She wades in the w-a-t-er

d-ee-p, deep, deep;

She climbs the mountains,

high, high, high—

Poor little thing!

She h-a-s b-u-t one eye.

Note: The poem is a riddle and the answer is 'a star.'
