Wild West – Lesson 5

I can identify words that rhyme.

Objective: To identify rhyming words. (RF.K.2)

Materials: toy badges, clipart, glue

Procedures: Purchase toy sheriff badges from the party favor section of a dollar store. Glue pairs of pictures that rhyme. Place the badges face down on a table to play a memory game. Take turns turning over two badges at time to see if the pictures rhyme. If they do, keep them face up. If not, turn them over and continue the game until all the matches have been found.

Conclusion: Have your child think of additional words that rhyme and then he will write them on a wipe-off board
