This free Earth Day rhyming page complements the Rhyming Word Fun Lists
resource. Good rhymers make good readers! Rhyming is fun and educational.
Reinforce these phonics concepts:
short vowel sounds, long vowel sounds, consonant sounds, digraph sounds, blends, silent letters, syllables, onsets/rimes (word families), rhyming awareness
The spelling of rhyming words is not constant as in word families:
rhyming words - mate, wait, straight
word families - mate, late, rate
Individually, in pairs / groups, or as a whole class activity, your students can have fun listing rhyming words.
This activity would integrate well with an Earth Day theme, incorporating topics such as recycling and caring for our planet. Earth Day, April 22, is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment.
