Small children are fascinated
by rhymes. In this lesson teachers can use children’s natural
curiosity of rhyme to create Wanted Posters for rhyming words
using Publisher or any similar software.
Recognize words that rhyme
Identify words that rhyme
Computer with Internet access, Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? (or any other
story using rhyming words), Picture Cards Microsoft Publisher
or similar software, Rhyme
Time Poster Worksheet
Begin by reviewing what rhyming words are
(words that sound alike). Give examples such as cat and hat,
moon and spoon, etc.
Read story, Jesse Bear, What Will You
Wear?, emphasizing with tone the rhyming words.
Tell students you will reread the story and
they need to listen carefully. Stop after each page and ask
which words rhymed. Write words on board and point out their
similarities. Ask for other words that rhyme with those from
Play “Rhyme Time”. Place various picture cards
in a pocket chart and tell children that they will find rhyming
partners. For example “boat,” look for a picture that rhymes
with boat. (goat)
Students will then complete a Rhyme Time Poster
Worksheet using Microsoft Publisher for their two rhyming words.
Students will type in the words and find pictures from clip art
for their two rhyming words. (Have a teacher aid or parent
volunteer help students while using Publisher.)
Remind students to include a title, graphics,
correct content and labels in their posters.
Students Rhyme Time Poster Worksheets
will be evaluated using a rubric. Teachers can create their
own rubric at Rubistar.
Rubistar has a poster rubric. Click on the word “Products” and
look for the Poster Rubric.
