Beat the summer heat with this fun CVC rhyming activity! Kids will love that it’s playful and YOU’LL love that it’s easy to differentiate for a variety of reading levels…
These darling CVC flip flops have picture clues AND simple short vowel wods so even early readers can find success.
The prep for this rhyming activity was quick and easy.
First, I printed my rhyming flip flops on cardstock and then cut them out with my paper slicer. I chose to laminate them too for use year after year.
Then, I printed out the recording sheets on some bright Astrobright paper to add a fun pop of color. (Printing the pages on white copy paper would work too!)
I grabbed some pencils and we were set.
CVC Rhyming Activity
Working with my small group, I laid out five sets of rhyming pairs.
(Since we just started working with rhyming, I didn’t want to overwhelm my students.)
The first student picked a flip flop from the cards laid out on the table and said the word out loud: lid.
He placed the card on the table in front of him and went looking for its rhyming match.
“Lid – sub. No, that’s not a match.
Lid – jam. No, that’s not a match.
Lid – Kid. That rhymes!”
It took a few tries, but the student successfully found the word kid to complete the matching pair.
Then, I had the entire table say the two words together: lid – kid.
Once all the students, had correctly found all of the matches, I pulled out the recording sheet and had them write the matching pairs for each vowel sound.
This CVC rhyming activity was great to work on learning those rhyming sounds!
