The ability to hear rhyming words is the basis of phonemic awareness when learning to read and write. After children can identify rhyming words in oral language, they often respond by matching pictures that rhyme. The next step in the process is to write rhyming words. Betty Jo Evers created "Time to Write Rhymes" for this purpose.
"Time to Write Rhymes" includes 15 rimes and a response sheet for each. Children create a list of rhyming words by writing onsets to 15 different rimes (word families). Then, they use each list of words to write two or more sentences.
Also included in this product are: a Record Sheet and Helpful Tips for teaching children how to create lists of rhyming words.
These activity sheets are suitable for Liteacy Centers as well as for homework assignments. They may be completed with a partner or individually.
