The Importance of Rhyming
Rhyming is one of the most important skills pre-readers learn so they can start to understand and access the language. It helps to emphasize the sounds different letters and blends make together and it helps to segment out words into the different sounds early readers hear.
Erupting Rhymes volcanoes
Erupting Rhymes cards
Step 1 Your first step will be to put together the volcanoes. Make sure the printed side is facing out and curve each piece around until it has created a cone, leaving enough space at the top to put the rhyming cards in.
Step 2 Lay out all of the rhyming cards on a table so you can see the pictures and words of each card.
Step 3 One-by-one, have your child identify the picture on each card and then find the matching rhyme volcano.
Step 4 Once your preschooler has identified the correct rhyme, have him/her place the card inside the volcano with the correct rhyme! Don't you just love how the lava and smoke on the card look like they are shooting right out of the top of the volcano!?
