Valentine Circle Activity for Rhyming Words
Print! Laminate! Cut! That is all you have to do to create a Circle time activity that your students will enjoy.
Rhyming is an important early phonics skill and this Circle Time Activity is designed to help kids recognize words that rhyme. Words with ending rhyme have the same final vowel sound and following consonant sound(s).
Rhyming words help children remember words more easily. Children find that working with words that rhyme is fun. The cute graphics interwoven into this activity will keep them engaged as the class works to fill each heart on the Card. Rhyming also helps children learn about word families and how words are put together. Kids also begin learning about the patterns, rhythms, and structure of our language through words that rhymes.
This Valentine themed circle activity lets students practice the rhyming sounds of “ip”, “ill”, “un”, “ock”, “ig”. Students will take turns choosing a piece of a heart with a picture on it and decide which card shows the word family that their piece rhymes with. Next they will go up and place the piece on the correct card in the correct place. It is also a puzzle because each piece fits only on one place on the correct heart.
There is a companion worksheet that students can complete independently that focuses on the same rhyming words.
