Valentine’s Day Rhyming Activity

This rhyming activity is useful for a wide range of kiddos. I’m excited to start practicing rhyming sounds with my 3 year old daughter during our homeschool preschool time. But rhyming was also a skill I practiced with my kiddos in my first grade classroom!

Rhyming is a great skill to master in preparation for phonics instruction. Hearing rhyming sounds helps prepare little ones for listening to word families and phonics patterns, and is commonly used in predictive storytelling. (And in our house, we consider rhyming games TONS of fun!)

How to Prep

This activity is easy as can be to prepare! If you’re planning to save this activity for years to come, print your rhyming cards on cardstock and laminate them for durability before you cut them. In a hurry? No worries! This can also be a perfect print-and-go activity!
