Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we have a sweet rhyming activity for your kids! And it’s designed for all ages, because rhyming continues to be an important part of phonological awareness even as students move on to more advanced reading.
Let’s get started!
Getting ready to play your “Rhyming with Candy Hearts” Game is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Just follow these simple steps!
In this activity, your children match pairs of rhyming words. They’ll make the connection that if they can read wiggle they can also read giggle. We’ve included words from all four levels of All About Reading so everyone can play.
For younger kids, mix up the playing cards and place them on the table with the illustrations facing up so they only have to match the words.
For older children, you can add an extra level of challenge by placing the cards face down and playing Concentration.
Either way, children should read the words aloud as they match the rhyming pairs.
Continue playing until all the pairs have been matched.
I hope you enjoy playing this sweet rhyming activity with your children! Let me know how you liked it!
