Quick and relatively easy educational activities are my favorite thing to have ready for my kids when they get home. Nothing too overwhelming but something small to supplement what they are doing in class. This simple rhyming activity for my daughter is the first we have done without pictures. We have often used stickers as visual prompts, but her reading ability has developed and I decided to go with only text. I kept the activity shorter than I would normally ( it took her 2 minutes tops) because I honestly wasn’t sure how much she’d struggle with a few of the words. She didn’t so I am already making a new list of rhyming words in my head to do this again in the coming weeks with more locks. This is a great literacy center idea too.
How To Make This Rhyming Activity For Literacy Centers
Invite your child to come and unlock them for you. Kids LOVE these activities, keys and locks are “adult” things and being able to play with them is fun for every child I have ever worked with. Use that novelty to your advantage.
I barely had time to take photos. She read all the locks and all the keys and then boom bim bam, she was done. I really thought she might need help with the short a sounds but she read them all like a pro!
