Learning to read is no easy task, and many things must happen as children grow into readers. One skill that early readers develop is rhyming. Learning to rhyme may seem like it comes naturally (after all, you can likely easily think of nursery rhymes from your childhood) but that isn’t always the case for many children. It needs to be practiced and children need to be exposed to it. But rhyming does NOT have to be boring – in fact, it is one of the most fun parts of learning to read (in my opinion). These rhyming activities for kids are simple, engaging, and most of all – FUN!
