Rhyming is a very important beginning step in learning to read and extremely important to phonological awareness. When kids can hear and understand the matching rhyming words they can predict what's coming next in stories or poems. It also helps them with the rhythm of reading and how sentences fit together to create a cadence in the story. Kids are also exposed to the beginning of recognizing patterns in spelling as many rhyming words are spelled the same. This also is a great way to introduce those more complex vowel sounds, or diphthongs.
These Fun in the Sun Rhyming games are a great way to introduce, practice or even master those awesome rhyming skills. They would be great for a literacy center, small group work, morning work or some quiet table top activities.
• choose your game boards (there are several options to choose from including full color or ink-saving black & white) or use them all for small group work.
• choose your game pieces (there are several options to choose from with a fun splash back, just the image or an image & word) print them all for differentiation.
• laminate and cut out. (personally I prefer to laminate full pages & cut out the pieces but you do you).
√ choose a game piece and place on board (use velcro or magnet tape to help them stick but this isn't necessary)
√ find all the matching rhymes and add to the board (up to 3 although a few have extras).
There are a few extras that you can substitute in or use as an extension. *personally I suggest that you start with a few and build up, rotate out the game pieces for an extended play!
