Rhyme Time

Children love words that rhyme. Rhyming words are important to reading because they call children's attention to the sounds inside words.

What you need:
Some words that rhyme

What to do:

1. Think of words that rhyme. Say two words that rhyme, such as cat and hat. Then say, "Listen to these two words that rhyme, cat (pause) hat. Now I'm going to say other words that rhyme with cat and hat. Here's another one, rat. Can you tell me another word that rhymes with cat, hat, and rat (such as fat)?"

2. Repeat this game with other words that rhyme, such as:
Pot, tot, lot, hot
Pin, tin, fin, in
Tag, rag, sag, bag
