UNIT 2: Kindergarten Phonics & Word Recognition: Rhyming Words is the second unit from a series of five Language Arts Units which is Common Core Aligned and focuses on the common core area of phonological awareness as well as word recognition. This Unit will have your students practicing the recognition of CVC words which follow these rhyming patterns: -ap, -at, -ad, -ag, -am, -an, -et, -ip, -og, -un.
The first part of the Language Arts Activities in Unit 2 will have your students identifying and recognizing words that rhyme. They will be presented with four CVC words/matching pictures. Three of these CVC words will rhyme; one will not! Students will choose the three that rhyme, cut the word/matching picture out, and then glue, tape, or Velcro these on their laminated Farm Mat which is labeled, “Welcome to the -vC Rhyming Farm”.
The second part of these Language Arts Activities will provide your students with the farm mat: a picture of a farm scene on which students will glue, tape, or Velcro (if the farm mat is laminated) the three CVC pictures along with their completed CVC words which rhyme from the previous page. Students may also “illustrate” their Farm Mats by using the paper farm people/farm animals provided at the end of this Unit. Students will cut and paste/Velcro these paper figures onto the Farm Mat as well. Students will have lots of fun as they use their imagination in order to illustrate their very own Farm Mat!
Also included within this Unit:
***Answer Keys to the Language Arts Rhyming Activities
***Paper cut-outs of different Farm People, Farm Animals, etc. to "illustrate" the Farm Mats
