Youngsters love to listen for rhymes, play with words and make up new words along the way.They even enjoy rhyming nonsense words, like in the Dr. Seuss books. They don't realize it, but when they're rhyming they are practicing their thinking skills. Rhyming is a way of exploring language and increasing vocabularies. Most children should be able to recognize words that rhyme by the age of three.
Here's a rhyming activity sheet to help reinforce your child's rhyming skills. You can point out that words don't always have to end in the same letters to rhyme.
