Rhyming Fun FREEBIE

WOW! I'm blown away by all the comments to my giveaway yesterday. I hope everyone who commented got their freebie. I sent them early this morning.
I had a great holiday. There's nothing like a BBQ with homemade ice cream and all the family on the 4th of July. I hope you all had a great holiday too.
At the beginning of the year we do some work with rhyming words. For some of my firsties this is very easy but others struggle with it. One of my favorite books to help teach this concept it 'Rhyming Dust Bunnies' by Jan Thomas. Click on the picture of the book for more info from

This is such a great book for rhyming. My kiddos LOVE it. I made a little rhyming packet to go with it for when you teach rhyming. There are 32 pictures for matching. You can use them as a matching game in a center or sort them in a pocket chart. Then there are 3 sheets for the kids to write some rhyming words and one that doesn't rhyme like in the book.

I'd LOVE to hear more ideas on teaching rhyming words. What do you do?
I hope everyone has a Marvelous Monday! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found something you can use in your classroom.
