Early reading activities don’t have to be complicated to prep; your kids will love playing this Cover all that Rhyme phonological awareness game! Interactive games can help teach your kids new concepts and help them learn new skills in the process. My kids enjoy any activity that makes learning more engaging and fun…especially when we add play dough into the mix.
FIND EVEN MORE RHYMING ACTIVITIES IN OUR PRINTABLE RHYMING 3-IN-1 ACTIVITY BOOK
Over the years, I have shared many free printable rhyming games. This newest “cover all that rhyme” game focuses on phonological awareness, using word sounds and picture clues instead of presenting the written word.
Using this activity, your kids will practice saying a focus word and then identifying additional words from pictures that rhyme with the focus word.
Start by choosing a specific activity mat for children, or let them choose their own.
Before introducing your kids to this activity, use the answer keys provided to familiarize yourself with the focus words and words used for each picture.
This activity can be done in small groups during skill practice, during intervention, or in literacy centers for additional independent practice.
HOW TO PLAY
This Cover and Rhyme Activity is played by having your kids say a focus word from the set and then identify any words from the pictures that rhyme with the focus word.
Once they’ve identified the words that rhyme, they will cover the words using a manipulative of their choice.
We used little animal manipulatives like the bears in the picture below and regular play dough in our classroom. You could also use little erasers, any small easily handleable manipulative, or another item of your choice.
