We are continuing to develop our awareness of words that rhyme.
Remind your child of the rhyming words that we have been learning. Ask them if they can think of a word that rhymes with mat and rat? Then ask them if they can think of a word that rhymes with cog and jog? Are they beginning to remember which words rhyme?
Below there are 5 new nursery rhyme pictures. Ask your child to choose some rhymes to sing together, both from these pictures and ones from previous weeks. As you sing each rhyme, draw your child’s attention to the words that rhyme. For example, if you choose to sing Row Your Boat, talk about how the word stream rhymes with dream and scream, if you sing the crocodile verse!
Can your child remember any of the other verses that we sing in class?
- Row your boat gently down the river, if you see a polar bear don’t forget to shiver!
- Row your boat gently to the shore, if you see a lion don’t forget to ROAR!
- Row your boat gently down the creek, if you see a little mouse don’t forget to squeak!
Below are a new set of rhyming pictures to introduce your child to. Let them look at each picture in turn and say what they can see. If they say ‘chicken’ for the hen picture, draw their attention to how the words pen and chicken wouldn’t rhyme – can they think of another name for the chicken, that would rhyme with pen?
Below is a rhyming activity video with Mrs Metcalfe which we would like you to watch and play along with!
