    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Bat & cat
    D. Stop & pop
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bat & cat, stop & pop" because these pairs of words rhyme. Rhyming words have similar sounds at the end, specifically the vowel and consonant sounds. In the given options, "bat & cat" and "stop & pop" have the same "at" and "op" sounds respectively, making them rhyme. The other pairs, "ocean & commotion" and "stair & glare," do not have similar sounds at the end, so they do not rhyme.

    High frequency words and sight words are the same thing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    High frequency words and sight words are not the same thing. High frequency words refer to words that appear frequently in texts, regardless of their level of difficulty. These words are important for developing reading fluency. On the other hand, sight words are specific words that are taught to children to recognize instantly, without needing to decode them. These words are often taught because they do not follow regular phonetic patterns and cannot be easily sounded out. Therefore, while high frequency words may include sight words, they are not synonymous.

    • D.

      Syllable

    Correct Answer
    C. Smallest unit of sound
    Explanation
    A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a language. It is not a symbol or a letter, as these are representations of phonemes. It is also not a word or a syllable, as these are made up of multiple phonemes. Instead, a phoneme refers to the individual sounds that make up words and differentiate meaning in a language.

    The correct answer is 3 because each word (cat, chat, fish, blue) has three distinct sounds or phonemes. In "cat," the phonemes are /k/, /æ/, and /t/. In "chat," the phonemes are /tʃ/, /æ/, and /t/. In "fish," the phonemes are /f/, /ɪ/, and /ʃ/. And in "blue," the phonemes are /b/, /l/, and /u/. Therefore, all the words have three phonemes.

    Correct Answer
    D. These words do not have the same number of graphemes.
