Tip for Parents: Rhyming Fun
Before interacting with this app, talk to your child about rhyming words. Perhaps they already know about rhyming words and if so, have them tell you what they are as well as some examples. If they don’t know what it means to rhyme, give them the definition (rhyming words are words that have similar sounds) as well as some examples. To extend this further, then provide them with a word and have them think of as many words as they can that rhyme with it. Rhyming builds phonemic awareness, which then helps build a strong foundation for early reading - and it’s fun! As they play with, listen and read this app, have them be on the look out for rhyming word pairs.
