A Pet Jet 

Printable Worksheet  

Dots on Pots, one of our free worksheets for kindergarten

Directions for use:

Before presenting this worksheet, do some board work with your entire class (or your own child) to introduce the ET word family. 

  • Teach the sound made by the letters ET.
  • Focus on just one letter at a time that may precede ET.  Say the word made by adding this consonant. For early learners, stick with single consonants and one-syllable words.  Form the words  JET, LET, MET, NET, PET, SET, VET, WET and YET. (Later you can add more complex words.)
  • Be sure kids understand the meaning of each word you spell. Write the words on the board. Ask a student to come to the board and add one of the consonants to -et. Ask  her/him to say the new word s/he just spelled.
  • When your students have a good understanding of these words, pass out "The Pet Jet" printable worksheet. 
  • Discuss story ideas. Write a story-starter sentence on the board for children to copy. Encourage each child to continue the story on his/her own.
