~~Using the idea of Introduce-Recognize-Identify, it is easier for the child to recognize a rhyme than create his own. Bubs’ Kindergarten teacher taught him a simple saying to help with this.
they both say -______
For example: Jack, black; they both say -ack
This allowed him to hear the common sound instead of having to create it himself.
~~ Earobics: Sound Foundations for Reading & Spelling A while back I posted about the Earobics computer program. I truly believe that Earobics was the turning point for Bubs in rhyming words. I LOVE this program and fully understand why so many schools used to use it.
~~ Clifford’s Fun with Rhymes – Sadly, my aunt used this VHS tape so much that we weren’t able to view all of this. What we saw was perfect. Check your local library for a copy as well.
