Teaching Tip for Rhyme Time

If you are having a year-end parent get-together, having next year’s Kindergarten parents in or are sending home  summer-activity information, be sure to encourage parents to practice rhyming over the holiday.

Children need to be able to:

  • identify rhymes – do bat/hat rhyme?  do bat/bug rhyme?
  • produce rhymes – what rhymes with ____ (eg. bat)

A fun activity might be to create a rhyming book – find pictures in magazines or catalogs that rhyme and glue them into a book – read the rhymes regularly.
