Process
For more educational fun with rhyming words click here !
Some of Dr. Seuss’ books have been made into movies!
Watch one of the trailers and see if you can identify any
rhyming words!
To practice their skills with a fun activity, students will sit
in a circle and the teacher will have a ball. The teacher
will toss the ball to a student and ask, “What word
rhymes with rake?” The student will then reply with,
“Snake” or whatever word they believe rhymes. If student
is correct, it is their turn to toss the ball to one of their
peers and ask a question.
