  • Slide 12
  • Using Wake Me Up lets chart the end rhyme directly onto the page. Start with the letter a for the 1 st line If the next line ends with a rhyme for the 1 st, label it a again. If NOT label it b. Each time a new sounding end word occurs, give it the next available letter. Each time a rhyming end word occurs, give it the same letter as the last time that rhyme sound was labeled. Sometimes, its a judgment call when the rhyme is imperfect, but you will see patterns emerge. Trust them. Further practice with Uprising. END RHYME CLASS PRACTICE
