Students will find pictures in a magazine that represent words
Students will construct a collage from the
The teacher will introduce the concept of rhyming
words. She should write the words on the board so students can
see the parts of the words that are the same.
Students should then be instructed to look
through the magazines and find pictures of words that rhyme (red
and bed). After they have found pictures, the students should
glue the pictures onto construction paper. Students then write
the rhyming sound near the pictures (e.g. ‘ed’ near the photo
of something red and the bed).
* Note: Students may have difficulty looking
through the magazines and finding pictures. To make the project
go more easily the teacher may want to cut pictures before hand,
thus guaranteeing there will be rhyming concepts available.
Do the represented pictures rhyme?
Students can make up sentences or poems using the rhyming words.
