    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    The easy ones are three-letter words with the same consonant at the beginning and end.

    dad
    pop
    mom
    etc.

    I'm sure you can think of more.

    The next easiest are words with a double vowel in the middle and the same consonant on either end.

    deed
    peep
    sees
    boob
    noon
    toot

    My favorite is racecar.
