The Rhyming Game

Tickle your child's tongue with a homemade book of rhymes.

Read, write, and rhyme
Read, write, and rhyme

What you need:
• magazine or catalog with appealing pictures
• children's safety scissors
• glue stick
• stapler
• drawing paper
• marke
• die

What to do:
1. Ask your child to staple together several sheets of paper. She can make a cover for the book with crayons or markers.

2. Give your child an appealing magazine or catalog. Ask her to cut out a picture for each page of the book and glue it on the paper. Help her write the object's name under the picture.

3. Turn to the first page of the book to begin the game. Roll the die to determine how many rhyming words must be written under each picture. The rhyming words can be real or silly words. For instance, if there is a picture of a book, you can write "look," "hook," "plook," and so on.

4. Continue taking turns and playing the game until all the pages have been filled. The rhyme book can be completed over a period of time. When it's done, your child will enjoy going back and reading her rhymes.

Learning benefits:
• provides practice with rhyming sounds
• builds writing skills
• encourages recognition of words and word families
