RF.K.2 Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).

a.  Recognize and produce rhyming words.

Rhyme Detectives - Tell the children that they will get to be detectives and
listen for words that rhyme.  You say a word, and they put their pinkies up if they hear a word that rhymes with it.   Pinkies down if it doesn’t rhyme. 
For example:  Cat - hat (pinkies up), run - dog (pinkies down).            

Handy Rhymes - Have children extend their arms as they say pairs of words
that rhyme.  For example:  sun (extend right hand) - fun (extend left hand).  As
they progress, the teacher says a word as children extend their right hand. 
Children say their own rhyming word as they extend their left hand.

Rhyme Ball - You will need a ball, beanbag, or other object to toss for
this game.  Children sit or stand in a circle.  The teacher             says a word and then tosses the ball to a child.  As the child catches the ball, she must say a word that rhymes.

Riddle Rhyme Game - Let children make up their own rhymes in this game.  First,
they choose an object in the room.  Next, they say a word that it rhymes, along with another clue.  For example:  “This rhymes with hair and it is something you sit on.”  “This rhymes with look and it is something you read.”

Nursery Rhymes - Sing traditional nursery rhymes to tunes such as “100 Bottles
Pop on the Wall,” “Yankee Doodle,” “Sweet Betsy from Pike,”             and ”Gilligan’s Island.”
