This activity is easy to set up!
Print off the pages of your choosing, then laminate (*optional) for durability, cut and use.
Encourage children to start by pointing to and identifying each letter. Next, encourage children to sound out each letter to read the word.
As children assemble the puzzles from each word family, be sure to point out that they all share the same ending sound and are rhyming words.
Can they think of any other words that rhyme with each set?
For a fun variation, attach the puzzle cards to card stock or colored paper before laminating, then use to play a matching game.
