Alphabats - Rhyming Words is a super fun way for kids to practice phonemic awareness. Click on the bats’ bellies to hear the words, and then match the words with rhyming sounds. Match 6 words correctly and then help the bats collect fireflies!
Students will have to listen carefully so they can match words that have the same middle vowel sound, like "stove" and "rose."
In this lesson, students explore books and magazines for words that have the "ig" rime, in addition to brainstorming their own words. Furthermore, assessment is included as students incorporate learned words in context and isolation.
This lesson provides a series of literacy activities based on the familiar words and characters of nursery rhymes that can be used regularly to help children grow as readers and writers. Activities include reciting nursery rhymes to gain oral fluency, then adding a written chart so students can follow along with the written words as they say the rhymes. Students can also play and explore at nursery rhyme Websites.
In this game, students indicate if a spoken word rhymes with another word. Students also say another word that rhymes with a spoken word.
These activities provide examples of one-on-one student assessments that can be done informally in the classroom. Students will focus on the concepts of print as well as phonics.
This resource accompanies our Rethink Kindergarten ELA course. It includes ideas for use, ways to support exceptional children, ways to extend learning, digital resources and tools, tips for supporting English Language Learners and students with visual and hearing impairments. There are also ideas for offline learning.
This unit was created by the Rethink Education Content Development Team. This course is aligned to the NC Standards for Kindergarten ELA in Reading Foundational Skills.
In this lesson, students will identify the roles of the author and illustrator. Students will also recognize and produce rhyming words by writing the words and adding drawings.
This document provides a description of what each standard means a student will know, understand and be able to do. The "unpacking" of the standards done in this document is an effort to answer a simple question, "What does this standard mean that a student must know and be able to do?" and to ensure the description is helpful, specific and comprehensive for educators.

This assessment and remediation guide contains resources (lessons, worksheets, games, songs, progress monitoring, and more) to develop a student's phonological awareness by determining a student's need(s).
In this lesson, students recognize and produce rhyming words. They are able to add or substitute sounds in simple words to make new words. Students will practice by reading nursery rhymes with similarly spelled words and identify the sounds of the letters that differ.
In this lesson, students will learn to identify letters and words by exploring one another's names and other words. Each student gets to be "Student of the Day," and the class will explore his or her name and life. Students will learn which letters are in their classmate's name, as well as the words for their friend's hobbies and favorite things. Students will be encouraged to draw and write messages to each other on a daily basis.
In this lesson, the teacher reveals the first letter of the name, having students whose name start with that letter stand. More letters are revealed and students sit down as their name is ruled out. Once the helper is selected, students read the helper's name, count the letters in the name, clap the syllables, spell the name aloud, add the name to the word wall, and make observations about it. Using magnetic letters, students can create words that rhyme with the helper's name. Many additional ideas for playing with the letters of students' names are also presented here.
In this lesson, students learn to identify written words with similar endings by singing and reciting nursery rhymes. Students begin by reciting Humpty Dumpty, identifying two words with similar ending sounds, and creating their own lists of words with the same ending sound. Students repeat this procedure with words from Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater and Jack and Jill. Finally, students access a website to identify the word families featured in other nursery rhymes and then create an illustration and text based on their favorite nursery rhyme.
