Rhythm and Rhyme

Tips for teaching rhyme:

  • When talking to your child about rhyme the best explanation is that ‘words that rhyme sound the same at the end’.
  • When teaching your child anything it is important that it is fun and in short bursts (no longer than 5-10 minutes).
  • Remember that the concept of rhyme is very tricky for young children; don’t worry if they don’t get it straight away!

Use the sheet attached below for rhyming pictures.

Print the pictures and then cut them out. If you can find real items which rhyme then please use them.


Activity one 

Odd one out

Lay three pictures on the floor which rhyme, and one that doesn’t. Say the words to your child, asking them to listen carefully to the words and to find the one that doesn’t rhyme. Remind your child to listen carefully to the sound at the end of the word, e.g. Tree, bee, pin, three.

"Which word doesn't sound the same? Which word doesn't rhyme?"


Activity two

Rhyming scavenger hunt

Hide rhyming cards around the room or in the garden. See if your child can find the cards that rhyme. As they find them say them in a row (cat, mat, hat, bat). "These words all rhyme. They all sound the same."
