  • Independent Practice Worksheet: "Match Rhyming Words to Pictures"

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify and match rhyming words to corresponding pictures.

Introduction (5 minutes)

Begin the lesson by introducing the concept of rhyming words. Ask students, "Which word rhymes with dish?" Show pictures of a fish and a dog to illustrate the concept.

Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling (10 minutes)

Present an example question: "Which word rhymes with dish?" Display pictures of a fish and a dog, emphasizing that rhyming words end with the same sound. Explain the key idea that words like "tip" and "slip" rhyme because they both end with "ip," while words like "tip" and "last" don't rhyme because they end with different sounds. Solve the example by identifying that "wish" and "fish" rhyme, both ending with "ish," while "mop" does not rhyme.

Guided Practice (5 minutes)

Distribute the Guided Practice Worksheet: "Match Rhyming Words to Pictures." In pairs or groups, students will circle the rhyming words and pictures. Provide guidance and support as needed.

Independent Practice (10 minutes)

Distribute the Independent Practice Worksheet: "Match Rhyming Words to Pictures." Students will work individually, matching words to their corresponding pictures. Monitor for misconceptions and provide intervention as necessary.



Provide additional support by offering one-on-one assistance to students who may struggle with identifying rhyming words.


Challenge advanced students by introducing more complex rhyming words and encouraging them to create their own word-picture pairs.

Assessment (5 minutes)

Evaluate student understanding through their participation in guided and independent practice, completion of worksheets, and performance on the exit ticket.

Review and closing (5 minutes)

Summarize the lesson by emphasizing the skill of matching rhyming words to pictures and its importance in developing phonological awareness.


Be aware that students may confuse words that look similar but do not rhyme. Reinforce the concept that rhyming words have the same ending sound.
