Christmas Ornament Circle Activity for Rhyming Words
Rhyming is an important early phonics skill and this Circle Time Activity is designed to help kids recognize words that rhyme. Words with ending rhyme have the same final vowel sound and following consonant sound(s).
Rhyming words help children remember words more easily. Children find that working with words that rhyme is fun. The cute graphics interwoven into this activity will keep them engaged as the class works to fill each ornament on the Card.
Rhyming also helps children learn about word families and how words are put together. Kids also begin learning about the patterns, rhythms, and structure of our language through words that rhymes.
This Christmas themed circle activity lets students practice the rhyming sounds of “ake”, “ell”, “an”, “ive”, “ose”, “ote/oat” Students will take turns choosing an ornament with a picture and deciding which card has a picture and word that a their ornaments picture rhymes with. Next they will go up and place the ornament on the card.
There is a companion worksheet that students can complete independently that focuses on the same rhyming words.
