Here is the perfect addition to your rhyming lessons! (31 Rhyming Bracelets and 96 Rhyming Picture Cards)
Print out the bracelets on regular paper. Say the name of each picture and listen for the ones that rhyme. But BE CAREFUL .... one of the pictures does NOT rhyme with the others!
Can you find which one and cross it out? Then color the pictures that rhyme and get
stapled to wear and show others what you learned!
Cut out and staple ... glue can be messy and take a while to dry. This way they can
wear it right away!
I have also included a set of picture cards with all the same pictures that are used
on the bracelets. You can use these cards in a pocket chart. You can also play
To play “mix-Up/Pair-Up” you will need to pull pairs of matching rhyming cards so
you have enough cards for each student. (If I have an odd number of students, I
play with them!) Give each student one card. Start playing some music and
have the students “Mix-Up” ... they go around and greet each other, say Hello and
trade cards. Then they say “Good-bye” and go to someone else and trade with
them. They continue trading cards with each other until you stop the music.
When the music stops they are to STOP and look at their card. Now they need to
find the friend who has their match and “Pair-up”! “Who has a card the rhymes
with you?” Once they find their partner, they find a spot to sit together on the
floor. When everyone has found their match, have the partners share out what
they have. The other partners need to listen carefully and give them a “thumbs
up” if they agree. If they do not agree, have them explain why they think that.
When all done, have the students shake hands with their partner and say,”Thank
you for working with me today!”
