Phonics

This week we will be focussing on Rhyme, listening for words that sound the same at the end of words and saying lists of rhyming words in a 'rhyming string'.

 

Rhyming books are a good way to introduce children to rhyme.

Our book this week is 'Shark in the Park'.

 

Listen to the story below and ask your child to join in with the repeated phrases as they become more familiar with the book.

Shark in the Park

Here are some rhyming games:

Game 1:

After reading the book a few times over the week, ask your child if they can hear the matching rhyming words that sound the same at the end of the words, eg.

  • Timothy Pope _____ telescope
  • shark ____ park
  • fright _____ might
  • oh no ______   crow
  • fancy that ______cat
  • glad ______dad

 

Game 2:

Tell your child you are going to play a rhyming game and say some rhyming words.

  • First they must listen as you say:

         cat  --------  fat ----------  bat ---------  hat ----------  rat     (This is a rhyming string)

  • Next, ask your child to join in with you as you say the words again.

        Repeat the rhyming string, saying,

        cat  --------  fat ----------  bat ---------  hat ----------  rat -----------mmmmm_______

                                                                          (Can your child complete the word and say "mat "?)
