Recognizing Rhyme Assessment

Directions:

I am going to say two words: cat - fat. I want you to tell me if the two words sound alike. This is called a rhyme. Let me show you.

Model:

Cat and fat have the same sound at the end so they rhyme. Cat and mop do not rhyme because the do not have the same sound at the end.

pail - tail

Put your thumbs up like this if they rhyme:  
Listen to these two words: cow - pig
Now say the two words with me: cow - pig
Do these two words rhyme? (No)
Put your thumbs down like this if they do not rhyme:
