Good rhymers make good readers! Rhyming is fun and educational.
Reinforce these phonics concepts:
short vowel sounds, long vowel sounds, consonant sounds, digraphs, blends, silent letters, syllables, onsets/rimes (word families), rhyming awareness
The spelling of rhyming words is not constant as in word families:
rhyming words - might, white, height
word families - might, light, right
