Cut It Out!

Today I'm sharing a printable rhyming activity that doubles as cutting practice.  Rhyming helps children distinguish the sounds in a word, which builds the ability to "sound out" words later on. It is an important pre-reading skill, but it can be a tricky concept for many preschoolers.  My son learned his letter sounds at a young age, but struggled with rhyming for a while.  My daughter also struggled with it for a while,  but it is just starting to "click" for her now.  She needs practice though, so I came up with this simple activity for her.

I asked Corinne to cut the page into strips first.

For each strip, she identified the rhyming words and colored them in.

Then I asked her to cut out the non-rhyming word and get it out of there!

I tried to make a big deal about getting rid of the word that doesn't belong, and she really got into it. (I may or may not have done the "Uncle Joey" Cut.It.Out gag).

 She decided to keep her rhyming words in her crayon box and her "cut it out" words outside the box.

She decided to cut out the rhyming words even if they ended up attached after cutting the non-rhyming word off.  So we decided to play a game of memory with the pictures!

There are five pages like the one shown, so you could have up to 15 pairs if you wanted to make a bigger game of Memory from the cut-outs.
