Engaging and developmentally appropriate lesson plan and game about rhyming! Great for demo lessons!
The ability to hear rhymes, knowing that "cat" rhymes with "bat," but not with"bag," is an essential skill for learning to read because it means that a student can discern the differences and similarities among individual sounds (phonemes). Playing with rhymes trains the ear to hear the differences and similarities in how words sound. Experiences with rhyming can strengthen the ability to hear the sounds of our language, a skill that will serve students well as they learn to connect sounds with letters (phonics). Rhyming helps students discover many common word patterns, and the more familiar these patterns become in oral language, the more easily children will recognize them when they begin to encounter them in print. The ability to hear rhymes will ultimately help students as they learn to read and spell.
All of my products are purposely designed to be simple and "crystal clear"- created without an abundance of distracting borders, images, or fonts so that students can better focus on the learning activity at hand. Also makes for easier color printing!
Tips and Recommendations: Mount all small and large cards on white cardstock before any cutting. Use enclosed directional image (pencil can) on the back of the small cards to help students know which direction the cards should be in when setting up the game board with cards face down. Laminate all cards. Attach the large cards to thick/large popsicle sticks. Use the enclosed label for Ziploc bags for safe storing of the small game cards.
