Preschool activities to practice rhyming

It’s Wednesday, and here at Preschool Ponderings, that means time to focus on the standards.  Every Wednesday I choose an Early Learning Standard and share a number of activities that can be aligned with that particular standard.  Remember, the Standards that I use every day, and am most comfortable with are Ohio’s Early Learning Development Standards – you can review them here, however I’ve found that even if your State’s standards differ, many of these activities can still be aligned similarly. I’ve rounded up some great ideas today!

Domain: Language and Literacy
Strand: Reading
Topic: Phonological Awareness

Phonological awareness is all about recognizing the different sounds that make up words, and all of the concepts that are associated with this, including; rhyming, syllables, blending, segmenting, rime, beginning sounds, and ending sounds.  

Here are some ideas for exploring phonological awareness concepts, this week is all about rhyming!
