We rhyme often at our house. Ok. No, wait. Hubby doesn’t rhyme. Ever. And the school-aged kids have learnt it’s not “cool”, so they, well, pretty much roll their eyes… I guess it’s only Filip and I that love to rhyme. And if he can’t think of a rhyming word, he’ll make one up. Yep – he’s a nonsense word rhymer! He asks me to help him put on his “socks-y locks-y”, make him a “sandwich-bandwich” or go for a “walkie-talkie” together… I know what you’re thinking… I’ts only a matter of time before he joins the older kids… Oh well! I will enjoy it while it lasts 😉
Sooo, anyway, Princess and I worked on some Christmas tree rhymes.
(Click on the pictures to take you the resources in my TpT store and download some freebies in the preview for each resource!)
We worked on the “an” and “at” word families. Here is a picture of her sorting the Christmas ornaments to the correct trees.
We then did a follow-up worksheet. Here is a photo of her cutting out the ornaments ever-so-carefully.
I coloured while she cut…
Then she glued the ornaments to each tree.
Afterwards, we did a follow-up craftivity. We used some foam alphabet beads to build the words and, because the ornaments have the words spelled correctly on the back, Cami was able to independently check her spelling.
Here is the completed “an” rhyming tree:
And here is a completed decorated tree. Lots of fun for my Princess and I!
