Module by: Julie Arthur. E-mail the author

Summary: This lesson is for kindergarten students, rhyming is a California standard for this grade. Many students especially English Language Learners struggle wit this concept. Using pictures makes it easier for all students especially ELL’s and SDC students to understand the concept. Students respond physically (touching noses), verbally and in print. The lesson also covers Concepts About Print – another Kindergarten standard. Included are the lesson plan followed by the worksheet, this is two sided, students complete independently. Following the worksheet are the words and a picture, cut into strips across the paper and laminate for future use. The laminated cards can be used at other times such as before students leave for recess ask them for a matching word to reinforce concepts until all students are able to rhyme.
