Reading Rule Poem

Elementary Reading Rule: Short before Two

If you need to work with students on reading and writing words that include a vowel followed by two consonants (e.g., little), sum up your teaching with a poem that uses made-up words: “Ms. Huggle lives in the village of Popple…”


  • Elementary students can read the poem individually and then do a drawing.
  • The teacher can read the poem and have students write the double consonant words.
  • The poem can be hung in your classroom.

I’ve included all three ideas in this 6-page resource. Enjoy!
