Phonological Awareness-Rhyme Recognition

This is the time of year that I look ahead at the phonological awareness skills sequence to carefully plan my instruction.  When I look at what I assess in my first quarter, I am looking to see which of my students can recognize rhyme.  We will then move on to completing rhymes, then producing rhymes.
Why is phonological awareness important?
Research states there is a high correlation between phonological awareness and later success in reading and spelling.  Students must be able to hear and manipulate sounds before they can relate them to print… so I gotta make sure my kiddos can develop this important skill.
How?  
Here is a fun activity that I found!
Phonological Awareness-Rhyme Recognition 5

You can show this on your SMARTboard, or use the words to make your own chart.  Then add three picture cards to the boxes.  Two of the pictures should rhyme, one will not.  Have the students tap the one that does not rhyme with your magic wand!
Where can you get the picture cards?   You may have flash cards on hand.  The cards should just have the pictures on them.  If they have words, cover them up.  Your visual learners will match the letter sequence or word family.  This is a great skill, but it is not phonological awareness.  The students should be hearing the words, not seeing them… Make sense?
This just in… Heather’s Heart has a fun rhyming song on her blog… Check! It! Out!
So go forth and rhyme!

  1. LOVE and will do this on my Smart Board tomorrow! I posted a rhyme song that is interactive on my blog yesterday. Check it out!

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I don't have access to a Smartboard for my small groups but I can definitely incorporate the song! It will be fun to sing it because we often play "Odd One Out"!

  3. if your district uses Fountas and Pinnell phonics you can find lots of great rhyming pictures in that.
