Rhyming games to play with your children

Rhyming GamesSusan Maguire is a retired kindergarten teacher and blogs at “Together Time 4 Families“. This post titled “4 Sound Awareness Activities for Your Preschooler” has some good ideas for developing a young child’s awareness of the sounds in words.  Rhyming and listening for beginning sounds are fun, especially if you make them into a game.

Here’s an additional idea:  Make up your own endings to nursery rhymes as a game to play in the car or wandering around the grocery store.

Your child can fill in the blank! For example:

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the moon.

The little dog laughed to see such sport.

And the dish ran away with the ___(spoon).

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the house.

The little dog laughed to see such sport

And the cat ran away with the ___(mouse).

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the man.

The little dog laughed to see such sport

And the pot ran away with the ____(pan).

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the stork

The little dog laughed to see such sport

And the knife ran away with the ____(fork). Etc.

    Very informative post. I’ve found your blog via Yahoo and I’m really glad about the information you provide in your articles. Btw your blogs layout is really broken on the Chrome browser. Would be really great if you could fix that. Anyhow keep up the great work!
