Animal Rhyme Time provides teaching ideas for writing collaborative rhyming animal stories.
Writing and reading with rhyme is a great way to help develop children’s knowledge of language, of the sound-print connection, and of conventional spelling. Reading and writing in context is the best way to learn and understand phonics.
The resource includes a list of animals with one-syllable names and a selection of rhyming words for each. It is designed as a reference for teachers to use when writing rhyming animal stories with their class.
Two original nonsense rhymes are also included – to get the rhyming fun started!
