Recognizing rhyming words is essential for success with phonics and spelling. Students create this pocket-size flipbook that will grow along with their vocabulary!
Open this lesson by asking students to provide examples of words that rhyme. Document student contributions with Crayola® Dry Erase Markers and a classroom white board. Put contributions in a double-list format so that students are able to see the words and distinguish the letters.
Once the discussion has concluded, provide students with Crayola Gel Markers, several 3" x 5" index cards that have been cut in half, and several whole index cards . The index cards may be color-coded and all cards have been hole punched in the same place (on the left side of the card).
One the classroom white board, write two ending letters for the students to work with. Ask students to write these on one of their whole 3" x 5" index cards. For example, two ending letters could be "ar".
Using their Crayola Gel Markers, ask students to write on a half index card a letter or letters that connect with the ending letters supplied by the facilitator. For example, students could supply the letter "t" for "tar" or the letters "st" to create "star".
Now it is time to connect the two cards to see words. Students secure the half index cards to the whole cards using a brass fastener. Additional cards can be added as students learn new rhyming terms.
Students flip through their books to find rhyming words.
