Phonemic Awareness: Up & Down Rhyming Game

This is such a simple idea -- but very effective for my three-year-old!

  • List of rhyming and non-rhyming pairs of words (or just make them up as you go)

1)  Say two words aloud that rhyme (hat - cat).  Have your child stand up when they hear a rhyming pair of words.

2)  Share two words that do not rhyme (dog - bone).  Ask your child to sit down when they hear words that do not rhyme.

Mix up and alternate word pairs.  There should be a lot of up & down in this game, and it's great for keeping your child's attention!  I also included my older daughters in this by having them make up rhyming and non-rhyming word pairs and letting them "lead" the game.

*This activity was adapted from All About Reading (Pre-1).  Look for my review of the curriculum tomorrow!!
