For children to be able to notice and create rhyming pairs of words, they have to be able to distinguish sounds and determine when sounds match. A fun way to prepare your child for this auditory discrimiation skill is to play a matching game with egg shakers.
I made my own egg shakers by using easter eggs and filling them with a variety of objects like jingle bells, pom poms, buttons, and beans.
This was challenging for Logan but he has enjoyed playing this game every day this week.
I also created a sound game for Tyson. If you have a child 1-2 years of age, you might try this modified version first. I put all of the same objects (jingle bells, pom poms, buttons, and beans) into clear jars.
|Ps. This is my "big boy". He turned 11 months this weekend and started WALKING!!|
Tomorrow I will have rhyming activities for older children. So stop back by tomorrow and check it out!
