Learning to rhyme is such a critical factor for successful readers. In my opinion, this important phonological awareness skill should not be taught in isolation. I like to combine my rhyming activities with children’s literature because it promotes awareness of sounds and ties in to the activities in which my students are excited to participate. The stories in this packet are suggestions but highly recommended since the activities are based on the book. These books should be easily found in your media center or public library. Enjoy!
