"Down By the Bay" has to be one of the best songs to use in your classroom when teaching phonemic awareness and rhyming. Combined with the adorable clip art, your students will get a ton of use out of this.
Included with this product you will find the lyrics to the song on a chart. There are interactive pieces including: a bear combing his hair, a whale with a polka dot tail, a fly wearing a tie, a cat wearing a hat, llamas wearing pajamas, and a moose kissing a goose. Simply print, laminate, and add Velcro to the pieces and you are set.
The second part of this product includes strips for your pocket chart that show "______ rhymes with ______". This includes 42 pairs of rhyming picture cards. A picture can be inserted into your pocket chart before and after to complete the sentences correctly. In addition, these cards make a great set of cards for a memory game or matching game. And as you know, pictures can often have more than one word that goes with them. So I've included a rhyming key list for you so you have an easy and quick reference to the rhymes used not only with the picture cards but in the upcoming Spinner Game too.
The third part of this product, includes a spinner activity There are 12 different gameboards, each with a two spinners. You can add two paperclips and a pencil to create the spinners easily. Your students will spin the spinners on their boards and determine if the words rhyme with each other or do not rhyme. There is a recording sheet that allows your students to record by "x-ing" the box on the correct table as to whether or not the pictures rhyme. The game ends when either the "yes" or "no" table is complete. Your students will especially love this activity. Spinners are always a hit with my students!
