Rhyming Match

  1. Prepare picture cards in sets that rhyme. You can use pictures from magazines, computer clipart, or you can draw your own pictures. Mount these cards on tagboard and laminate them. Make them all the same size - 2" x 2" works well.
  2. You can use these cards for a variety of activities, including rhyme matching, poetry writing, and card games.
  3. The game of memory is fun as a center activity and a great learning tool. Students place all of the cards face down. They take turns flipping two cards over. If they rhyme, then they have a match and can go again. If not, it is the next player's turn.
  4. After students have completed the game, you can have them write down their pairs of matching words for practice and reinforcement.
