Developmentally appropriate Spring Rhyming literacy centers for the preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten classroom! This resource is perfect for all developmental and cognitive levels of early childhood. The centers are fun, engaging, and offer challenges and reinforcement of basic skills.
This resource is set up with 3 levels of developmentally appropriate Rhyming centers for the early childhood classroom. Every class is different, every student is different, so this resource gives you the option of starting out slowly, building on what your students know, and offering a challenge as skills are mastered.
Level 1: Is it a Rhyme? Rhyming Pairs Words Sort
This center activity introduces hearing rhyme by listening to pairs of rhyming words or words that do not rhyme and sorting them accordingly.. As you say the pair of words on each picture cards students decide if the words rhyme or if they don’t rhyme. Picture cards are placed on the proper mat. Game is played until all cards are placed on either the “Rhyme” or “Not a Rhyme” mat. My class LOVES this center!
Level 2: Find the Rhyming Words: Rhyme & Match 2!
This activity builds on the first. Not only do students listen for rhyme, they will find two rhyming words for each ‘base’ word on a rhyming strip. Each strip has a word and corresponding picture…students find rhymes from many different rhyming word cards.. This is a challenge for some, but fun for those students who are beginning to discover rhyming. You can use this activity as assessment as well!
Level 3: What Rhymes with…? Rhyming Words Board Game
This activity builds on the first two, but adds the element of finding a specific rhyme from the pictures on the board. There are 12 different rhyming word families represented in this game. Students must use previous knowledge and critical thinking as they look for and find rhyming words.
