The rhyming game is another fun language activity that helps the child become aware of sounds and rhymes in words. It also helps prepare for reading and spelling. We place rhyming objects in two different baskets. The child lays one set of objects in a horizontal row on the mat. She then picks one object from the basket and matches it to rhyming one on the mat. She goes on until she finds all the matches. This is quite simple, and for Dani, quite easy, but she still enjoyed it. I tried to vary the objects every time she played the game, so she wouldn’t feel bored. Another way of doing this is using an object and a picture. Either way works fine.
