Phonological awareness begins before your kids even start school, and it’s a skill they will use later in elementary grade levels and beyond. Developing rhyming skills in pre-k and kindergarten will help them develop phonological awareness and set a strong foundation for other phonics skills that build a strong foundation for reading.

Rhyme Clip Cards Printable Phonological Awareness Activity
This set of Rhyme Clip Cards is designed for your little ones to work on phonological awareness. As such, there are no written letters/words on these cards. In this activity, we want children to focus on the auditory aspects of the rhyming words.
If your students have a strong foundation in phonological awareness and are ready to begin more phonics-based instruction, we recommend using our phonics dominoes activity.
In this rhyme clip cards activity, students will practice saying one focus word and then choose between three options to pick the word that rhymes with the focus word.
Print out the clip cards. If you are going to make multiple sets, you may want to print them on colored paper or put a stamp/sticker on the pieces of the set to avoid mixing them up.
Laminate for extended use.
Cut clip card pieces apart individually. Before introducing this activity to students, use the word list/answer key to get familiar with the words used for each picture.
HOW TO PLAY
Your kids will start by choosing one of the clip cards and saying the focus word.
Choose between the three options and pick the word that best rhymes with the focus word.
This activity can be done in small groups as part of skill practice or in literacy centers for independent practice.
Choose between using clothespins, play dough, or manipulatives like-colored dots, mini erasers, etc., for kids to use as they cover the word that rhymes with the focus word.
For additional fine motor practice and sensory exploration, you can use manipulatives such as pom poms, clips, and playdough for a more hands-on learning activity.
