Rhyming words, when pronounced, have similar ending sounds, such as rag and bag, late and date, gold and told. When teaching children about rhyming words the best strategy is to immerse the children in examples of them through playing games and other fun activities such as reading poems, singing nursery rhymes or reading books.
Kids will respond differently when they hear stories or songs that are in rhyme because not all children are interested in the same topics. But when they do enjoy what they are hearing, the rhyme makes it easier to remember to retrieve and retell later. This makes rhyming words a perfect strategy to use when teaching children new information or language. Children are more receptive not only when they find their lessons interesting, but the rhyming sentences makes it easier for them to remember also.
Teaching children about rhyming words also provides many learning advantages. It can improve a child’s speech communication as well as their writing abilities, such as using the correct spelling of words by learning the rhyming patterns.
