Rhyming for preschool
I LOVE using new ways to practice rhyming skills – they are so much fun for kids and best of all, they are quick to setup and play! Use these cards to help kids learn to read and identify rhyming and CVC short vowel words. We know that with learning, repetition and practice is key. Kids will be motivated to find and color two matching ‘flip flops’ to identify the rhyming pair on this printable.
I always encourage kids to read the CVC word first, then to look for the rhyming pair.
After you’ve printed and laminated (optional) the sheets, place them on the table and show the kids what they need to do. They read the CVC word on a flip flip image, then perhaps identify the short vowel sound, then they look for a matching rhyming CVC word on another flip flop. The words on this printable have equal pairs.
