Why is Rhyming important for preschoolers to learn and practice?

  • It increases their phonological awareness (ability to listen and discriminate between the different sounds that make up words) which is one of the biggest indicators of reading success.

  • It helps them recognize rhythm and patterns in language, which improves their oral language skills.

  • It teaches them to make predictions and anticipate a rhyming word, which is an important reading skill.


There are many ways to practice rhyming with your child:

  • Read lots of rhyming books

  • Read and memorize nursery rhymes

  • Sing and memorize rhyming children's songs

  • Play rhyming games like this one!

This is a Free Printable Rhyming Sorting Game that you can use with children of different levels. For kids who are starting out learning about rhyming, you can have them sort only 2 or 3 groups of cards, while more advanced kids can sort all 6 groups. This is great for both readers and non-readers!

Here is how I played it with my almost 3 year old:

I set up 3 groups of cards, then gave her one card at a time to sort in the correct group.

I started out by asking her "Does bat rhyme with cat, does bat rhyme with dog, or does bat rhyme with pie?" She was confused at first, so I said "Bat rhymes with cat because it sounds like cat. Bat, cat, bat, cat." I did that for a few cards until she got the hang of it and started doing it on her own.
