Rhyming is an important skill to practice in preschool and kindergarten. Bring a festive twist to literacy centers this March with these playful St. Patrick’s Day Rhyming Cards. They’re the perfect complement to our Rhyming Activity Pack!
To prep, I printed the St. Patrick’s Day Rhyming Cards (below) on cardstock and laminated them for extra durability so that I could easily reuse the centers over and over again – a great time saver in the years to come.
Once I finished laminating, I cut out the cards.
Then I grabbed an empty plastic pencil box and placed the set inside. (It’s a simple way to keep all of the pieces in one place and allows students to easily pull for centers or independent work.)
St. Patrick’s Day Rhyming Cards
The St. Patrick’s Day Rhyming Cards (below) contain 30 individual cards that cover all vowels. There are three different rhyming card pairs for all five vowels, making 15 pairs total.
I love when a single printable can easily turn into a variety of different games for your students. There are so many fun activities that can do be done with these cards!
Here are a few of my favorite:
Pocket Chart Rhyming Sort
This can easily be completed on a pocket chart or on the floor. Students will sort through the cards looking for rhyming pairs.
Once students have mastered the above, they can play memory using these cards.
All they will need to do is lay the cards picture down on the ground and then take turns finding the rhyming pairs.
The person with the most pairs wins.
Vowel Sound Sort
Students can extend their knowledge of finding rhyming pairs by then placing each pair under the corresponding vowel. Simply write or type out the vowels on paper and have students sort according the the vowel.
