I Lost a Sound
Song for Teaching the Deletion of Initial Phonemes
Nancy Schimmel and Fran Avni


This song is also performed on Fran Avni's I'm All Ears: Sing Into Reading.

 After children become familiar with this song, play the recording while they
are drawing and see what happens!

One day I went out for a walk
With my nosy dog named Rover,
But on the way we lost a sound
And I thought our walk was over.
(Here teacher can ask: What's that sound we lost?)
"Where's that /r/?" I asked him,
We looked in the grass and clover,
We looked all around and under the ground
And the sound was found by Rover.
Rover, Rover, let everyone come over.

At school we painted on a wall
And I tried to draw a train,
But I fooled around and lost a sound
And all I had left was rain.
(What's that sound we lost?)
So rain is what I painted.
The teacher said, "That's good!
Rain will bring the flowers to
Our painted neighborhood."
Rain, rain, wash the train,
Rover, Rover, let everyone come over.

On that day of paper hearts,
I got my mom a glove.
But walking home I lost a sound
And all I had left was love.
So love is what I gave her,
She said she liked it fine,
Cause love is the very thing you need
To make a valentine.
Love, love, find the glove,
Rain, rain, wash the train,
Rover, Rover, let everyone come over.

Here's another verse, which, like the first verse, does not involve
taking apart a blend:

We fooled around till suppertime
And I thought that we'd be late,
But when we got home we lost a sound
So we sat right down and ate.
There was lettuce and lasagna
And luscious lemon pie
Rover licked his lips and licked my plate
When I fed him on the sly.
Late, late, we already ate,
Rover, Rover, let everyone come over



(Sing "Rover" quickly so "licked" comes on the first downbeat.)
