Rhyming is such an important phonological awareness skill. We practice it every day in preschool with silly songs, interactive fingerplays, and fun poems. With Dr. Seuss's birthday coming up, I wanted to share two of the special ways that we like to practice rhyming!
Rhyming Show & Tell is one of our favorite favorite days of the year. I send home a brown paper lunch sack with this poem attached.
The students take the bag home and find 2 small rhyming objects. They get soooo excited to bring the bag back to school the next day! During Show & Tell time, each student takes a turn in the sharing chair. The child pulls 1 object out of the bag and the rest of the class tries to guess what the other thing is. They love this game!
Another way that we practice is with rhyming folder games.
If you'd like to use folder games as a way to practice rhyming with your kiddos, please download this FREE activity: "A Tisket - A Tasket... which egg goes in the basket?"
Have a wonderful week with your students!
