Rhyming with Candy Hearts

Rhyming with Candy Hearts - All About Reading

In this free downloadable activity, your child can practice an important reading skill by matching pairs of rhyming words.

Roses are red,
violets are blue.
These candy hearts
need help from you!

Rhyming activities shouldn’t stop when kids start reading. Rhyming continues to be an important part of phonological awareness even as students move on to more advanced reading.

So we’ve included words from Levels 1-4 of All About Reading so that everyone can play.

Rhyming Game

Rhyming for Older Kids

Rhyming is important because it helps kids experience language in a fun way by learning to hear and play with words. This keeps kids tuned in and excited about language, which translates into easier spelling and reading lessons.

Rhyming with Candy Hearts

Rhyming also helps kids recognize written patterns and that common sounds are often spelled the same way.

This is lovely that you are offering these extras to use with your program. I suggest that you offer a black and white option also. I printed it in gray scale but I love to be able to save money on ink and then we color them ourselves.

Merry at AALP


Thanks for the suggestion; I’ll pass this on to our team!



Rhyming has always been difficult for my son. Hoping he is going to enjoy using these along with his AAR.




After receiving the free penguin pack with my purchase of All About Reading Level 1 I decided to visit your site to see what other supplemental materials you have available. My kids are going to love this valentine packet, thank you!
