Rhyme Game: Say pairs of words. If they rhyme the group jumps, if they don't the group claps.

Movement Cube

We colored action cards to take home and and create our own movement cubes.

Literacy tip of the week: Awareness of rhyme is an important skill when children are learning to read. Rhyming games are a great way to practice this skill.
