This rhyming match activity was designed to offer students a hands-on way to practice rhyming words. The resource includes six different themes to keep the activity fun and fresh for students. All themes are year-round, so this works great anytime throughout the school year!
The activities can be used for morning tubs, early finishers, small groups, or literacy centers. The directions for each rhyming match activity are the same, so once students understand the rules they can complete all of the activities without the need for re-explaining!
There are two picture card options included for all 6 rhyming match activities: with picture names and without picture names.
This packet includes rhyming match-ups with 6 year-round themes.
Each of the 6 themes includes:
• 2 work mats
• 16 rhyming cards / matches
• 2 rhyming card options: with and without picture names
• B&W Recording Sheet (optional)
• “I Can” visual directions page
To prepare this activity cut apart and laminate the work mats and the corresponding set of picture cards. (Pick which set of picture cards works best for your students.) Print a recording sheet, if using. This activity can be used with or without the recording sheet option.
Students can use the rhyming mats to complete this activity at a center; or just use the rhyming cards in a pocket chart center.
Students will match the rhyming cards to make a rhyming pair. You can also have students turn the card face down and play a Memory matching game with a partner.
A recording sheet is included for each set. Students will use crayons to color the rhyming pairs the same color – for a total of eight colors.
