Use these interactive books to target rhyming skills. Rhyming is a phonemic awareness skill, meaning that it’s all about manipulating oral language. Rhyming is just a part of phonemic awareness . . . of working with language, sounds within language, and playing with language. Students learn about word families and how words are put together. Kids also begin learning about the patterns, rhythms, and structure of language through simple rhymes. Phonemic awareness lays the groundwork for written language. Rhyming is a precursor to learning how to read and write. Help your child succeed in reading by using these interactive “Rhyme Time” Books. Learners interact with every page as they listen to/read questions and then find a rhyming picture to Velcro to the page. The students love to be kept busy finding the pictures and then pulling them off and reattaching them using Velcro.
Included in this packet are five different interactive “RHYME TIME” books with different words for variety as well as directions for assembly. A black and white version of each book is also included so that this can also be used as a cut and paste activity.
Print all pages of each book you will be using on cardstock and laminate for durability. OR Print all pages on regular paper if book is to be placed in the student’s notebook and taken home.
Trim all pages of each book ….. Cut around outside of each page so they are all the same size.
Cut all pages, EXCEPT THE LAST PAGE, of each book in half along black line.
Do not cut apart the last page of each book Leave the page whole….. This will be used for your interactive pieces.
Place Velcro pieces on the of each blank frame box on each page. No Velcro is needed if students are putting this in their notebooks or taking it home. Sudents can glue pictures in place instead.
Punch holes over the circles in the left gray areas of each page and use notebook rings ( or yarn) to bind the book together. If you bind the pages of the book with notebook rings, you can switch up the pages so students do not memorize the answers.
Also put Velcro in each box on the last page of each book.
No Velcro will be put on these pages if students are putting the book in their notebooks or if they are taking it home.
Cut apart all pictures on the picture page of each book and place Velcro on the back of each picture. Place these pictures on the empty boxes on the last page. OR If student is putting the book in their notebook and taking them home, just place pictures on top of squares so students can see all their choices to pick from and glue into their books.
