A rhyme is a repetition of similar sounds in two or more words. Rhyme is important to emergent literacy and learning to read because it teaches children about the language. Songs and rhymes expose your child to the rhythm of the language. This will help them read with some animation in their voice instead of just a monotone. Rhyme also prepares children to make predictions while learning words and gives them crucial decoding skills. In this activity, students will sort pictures that do or do not rhyme. 1. . 2.
