Rhyming Game for Kindergarten Writers

At this point in the school year Kindergartners are writing more and more and their parents are always on the lookout for incentives to get their child writing.  Here is one game for you and your child to play using clusters of letters or spelling patterns to make rhyming words. There are hundreds of such letter patterns to use but for know I will share with you the 37 most common. To play this game, give your child a word and have him/her write as many words as he/she can think of that rhyme with your word. Explain to your child that as he/she writes a new word the ending of the word must be spelled the same as the word you gave. (ie., all ack words must contain ack)

  • ack:  have your child rhyme with back
  • ail:  have your child rhyme with bail
  • ain: have your child rhyme with brain
  • ake: have your child rhyme with bake
