Rhyming Sort Phonological Awareness
This Rhyming Sort Phonological Awareness activity will help your kids focus on the sounds in the word and picture clues instead of just presenting the written word. In this activity, we want children to focus on the auditory aspects of the rhyming words.
Cut header and rhyme card pieces apart individually. 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.
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
In this activity, students will practice saying two words and then identifying whether they rhyme or not.
Students will sort word pairs that rhyme in one set and word pairs that do not rhyme into another set.
This activity can be done in a whole group using a pocket chart, in small groups as part of skill practice, or in literacy centers for additional independent practice.
You can even use it for all three to help kids get extra practice with the skill!
Remember to introduce the vocabulary prior to expecting students to do the task independently, so they are sure to know the words reflected in the pictures.
