Understanding rhyme and rhythm is an important part of reading, analyzing, and enjoying poems. The Rhyme and Rhythm lesson, for grades 4–8, guides students to recognize and interpret these poetic elements. This lesson includes a definition, an explanation of how the skill is used, an example, and practice questions with excerpts from real books. The Rhyme and Rhythm lesson can kick off a reading lesson or serve as an impromptu refresher of skills already introduced. The lesson also includes a separate Answer Key PDF.
