Rhyming Picture Cards plus two lessons
According to Fountas & Pinnell, “Phonemic awareness is one kind of phonological awareness. Phonemic awareness refers to the ability to identify and make rhymes…”. This product targets just that.
I created this product because I like to have rhyming cards on hand when I am teaching. I didn’t care for many of the commercial rhyming cards.
Within this product, you will find picture cards in both color and black and white, and the words to match them. You can use this product a couple different ways. One way is to use the picture cards for identifying rhymes by the sound. Starting with a field of two pictures that don’t rhyme. You name the pictures and show the student and ask if they rhyme. Using language such as “Some words have end parts that sound alike. They rhyme.” This can be done one on one or in small flexible needs groups. Next, add in a third picture and then have the child chose the two the rhyme. For example, you show a picture of a goat and a bear. Do they rhyme? No. Now add in a picture of a boat. Rename each picture and ask the child to chose the two that rhyme. This will provide you will tangible data and inform your instruction of who needs more direct instruction.
You can also use these pictures and the words to show that even when words sound the same, the way they are spelled can differ.
I have included two suggested lessons to increase phonemic awareness, complete with a follow-up activity. The lessons can be done one on one, small group or the whole group. The lessons include what is needed for you, the teacher, and materials for the student.
**This is not an exhaustive list of rhyming pictures/words but enough so that you can use them as you wish. The following are the pictures and words included:
These pictures can be used for sound sorting, rhyming, and looking at letter patterns or the rime.
I would print, laminate, and cut out the color set and store them in a file box, with dividers so that they will be easily on hand. The black and white set should be stored in a three-ring binder.
Thanks for stopping by!
