This center activity was designed for Kindergarten students. However, it could be used in a Pre-K classroom or even beginning first grade classroom to help reinforce rhyming skills.
This center activity game can be played in a few different formats great for independent centers or small group reinforcement.
Memory Directions:. Simply lay cards out face down in rows and take turns turning over the cards to see if you make a rhyming match. If you make a match you get to keep your cards and go again, you keep going until you can’t make anymore matches. If you don’t make a match you lose your turn and the next player goes. The person with the most pairs of rhymes wins. Memory Twist Directions: For the twist version you can use the sand foot print card. If you turn over a footprint card you lose a turn.
Student follow up activity.
For differentiated instruction I have included two different recording sheets one is a cut and paste rhyming sheet the other is a recording sheet numbered to write in the rhyming pairs for students who need more of a challenge. These sheets are meant to be used as a reinforcement for rhyming skills after the center activity has been completed either in small group or for independent work.
Rhyming pairs( cat-bat, jam-ham, can-van, map-cap, fan-pan, bag-tag, sun-bun, mug-jug, log-dog, hen-ten, pig-wig, bug-rug)
I hope you can enjoy using this with your kiddos as much as I have and do! Happy teaching to all!
