Guess the Rhyme

>Children love to guess at words that rhyme.

What you need:
A book of nursery rhymes
Books with repeated phrases or short rhyming poems

What to do:
1. Read the entire nursery rhyme to your child. Now reread the nursery rhyme leaving out the last word of every other line of the rhyme. Let your child fill in the last word of the rhyme. For example:

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great _______.

2. Do this with other nursery rhymes.
