Every time I go into the PreK unit at school, I always leave with a song stuck in my head! There is a good reason behind this... rhymes help develop your little learner's language development. Learning nursery rhymes introduce children to letter sounds and vocabulary as well as pitch, volume, and inflection.
I created an activity that targets the skills of rhyming. This packet includes 6 rhyming mats and 18 cards. Each mat includes a target word and 3 corresponding rhyming matches.
To use this activity, print and laminate the mats and sorting cards. Have your students sort the cards and match them with the correct rhyming words!
This activity includes target words ending in the following sounds:
-at, -ee, -all, -ing, -ail, -ar
This packet would be great for literacy centers in addition to therapy activities.
You can download this activity for free... yes you heard right, for free :)
PS- While writing this blog post, I came across this great article about rhyming and development!
