Recently I wrote about how important developing phonemic awareness was in Early Childhood. It is key to learning how to both read and spell and, then subsequently, write. By preschool age, one of the components of phonemic awareness is being able to identify rhyme. Literacy centres are a staple activity in my Early Years classroom so I've created these printable rhyming word peg cards to add to our Word Work next term.
Are you following us on Pinterest yet?
As you can see, they are simple to use. Just print and add some counters or clothes pegs to your centre for children to mark the rhyming word.
Each card uses beautifully clear colour photos to help support young children in their learning. The first picture with the text below is the word children are trying to find the match to. There are then three more photos for them to find the rhyming word from.
For example, for the word 'cat' children have to choose between bat, strawberry and lion. Most images will be familiar while others will help build on their growing vocabularies.
These rhyming word cards can be used for independent word work but because I plan to use these with a small group, I've created 40 different cards for them to work through.
