Rhyming is one of those things that you either get or you don’t. There just is not an in between period where they kind of get rhyming. I find repetition is key and one day it just clicks. In the meantime, finding fun ways to practice rhyming is absolutely necessary.
We are already on day 4 of the Ice Cream Printable Bonanza!! I’m cheating a little bit here and doing popsicles. I just thought these double popsicles would be perfect for a rhyme matching game!! So popsicle rhymes it is!
There are 12 different sets of rhymes, but for an early rhymer you could just print out one or two pages! We started off slow with just four popsicles. Typically, when we start rhymes, I help by saying the word out loud and really emphasizing the last syllable. “Mmmmm OUSE. MMmmm OUSE. c…AT. Hmm OUSE and AT don’t really sound alike. Let’s try another. Mmmm OUSE H OUSE. Ouse, Ouse…hey those sound alike!”
