Looking for another free rhyming resource? Try this rhyming activity with children learning to identify rhyming words.
I recently asked my blog readers what they’d like to see on the blog this year. Many people requested more rhyming resources. I find this interesting, as I already have quite a few on the blog. But then again, it’s such an important skill that you can never have enough!
My Three asks for “activities” every day. I admit that last week we didn’t do any – I was completely consumed by revising my letter of the week curriculum. So she was all smiles when I let her know I (finally) had a new activity for her!
She read the pictures (king, ring) and pinched the smiley face if the words rhymed, and the sad face if they didn’t.
Then, since I had marked the correct answers on the back, she could flip over the card to see if her fingers were pinching the correct answer.
Of course, you could always use good old-fashioned clipping clothespins and make these into the traditional clip card. I just felt like pinching was easier and quicker.
Besides the fact that most of our clipping clothespins are broken.
Or being used on bags in our pantry.
You know we love color at our house! But there’s a black-and-white version in the download if you’d like to save on ink.
I hope you get a chance to use these!
Ideas for using the pinch cards
- Put them on a metal ring so your child can flip through it in the car as you run errands.
- If you’re a classroom teacher, put the cards at a learning center. Make sure to put dots on the back so the activity is self-checking.
- To save ink, print the black-and white-version on colored cardstock.
- If you’d like, don’t make the cards self-checking. Instead, have children use the recording sheet to mark their answers so you can check their work later.
