There are three stages to learning rhyming:
First, being able to hear rhyming words- this is where students get use to hearing rhyming words in their environment.
Second, recognizing when they hear rhyming words- this is where a student can pick out rhyming words in a story or song.
Third, being able to produce rhyming words themselves.
Children must be about the recognize rhyming words independently before we can expect them to produce their own rhyming words.

Boom Cards Rhyming
Click the link below. The log in information is also included. Scroll down and click the 'rhyming' deck.
Grown-ups: cut out 10 pieces of small paper squares. You are making 5 rhyming sets. On one card draw a picture of an object and on the next card draw something that rhymes with the first card (for example, a bat and a cat). Then get the next 2 cards and draw an object on each card making sure the words will rhyme (for example, a pan and a fan). Repeat this until you have 5 sets of rhyming cards.
Read to play: lay the cards face down on a table. Each playing takes turns flipping 2 cards and saying the object’s name. If they match, the player keeps the cards. If they do not match, the cards are flipped back over. The player with the most matches wins.
