What to do

  1. Before introducing the game, compile a list of words that have rhymes which can be found in the classroom. For example, use the words sock (clock), look (book), hair (chair), label (table), floor (door), and blue (glue).
  2. Today we are going to go on a hunt. You are going to have to hunt in our classroom for certain objects.
  3. I am going to give you a word. And I want you to find an object in our classroom that rhymes with that word. Who wants to go first? Call on a student with a hand raised to come to the front of the room.
  4. Okay, are you ready for your word? “Sock.” Can you find something in our classroom that rhymes with “sock”? Go point to that object. Give the student some time to think. If the student can’t find the object, call on another student. Make sure to give all students a chance, especially those that are struggling.
  5. Continue in the same manner through the list of words.
  6. You may want to challenge students to come up with their own rhymes. Does anybody have a rhyme for us? If you can think of a word that rhymes with something in our classroom raise your hand.
  7. Observe students play the game. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
