    I haven't had any OCR training yet. I will in about 1 month. I was wondering how you started to teach rhyming words and word families. What do you say or explain what each item is?

    I say, "Rhyming words are words that end the same..."
    "Word families are groups of words that end the same..." These two are both the same, etc.

    I don't know if I'm saying the proper definitions of each, that's why I'm asking for suggestions on what to say exactly? Thanks!:huh:

    At my school, we tell our kids that rhyming words are words that sound the same in the middle and at the end. I say that the only thing that changes is the beginning sound. We have rhyming word books that we use and posters. I show them the patterns in a couple of the easy word families, such as the "at" family and the "og" family on the dry-erase board. We work on rhyming words all year, using silly words and real words. Any story that has a set(s) of rhyming words, I make sure to ask the students to pick out the ones that rhyme. We do lots of matching games and activities individually, with a partner, and as a group. It takes a lot of practice, but they practice and they eventually get it!:)

    I introduce rhyming words to my preschoolers through the use of books. I really like Hop On Pop and Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Then we play games Like "Rhyming Jingo" and make word lists. Like tarheelsak said, it does take a lot of practice but once they get it, you see their "light bulbs" come on.

    You can also do activities where you give a couple of rhyming words mixed with one that DOESN'T rhyme so that they can hear/see the difference.

    You can buy "Jingo" games(like bingo) at teacher stores. My Rhyming game has about 30 or more large game cards with pictures on them. The teacher has smaller cards with "rhyming clues" on them. The teacher reads the clues out loud, for instance: "This object is round, you wear it on your finger and it rhymes with king". The students have to look at their picture card and find the matching picture that rhymes and then put a bingo chip on it. There are a variety of Jingo games that cover other academic areas.
