Cars Rhyming Activity
Identifying rhyming words is a skill most early readers can struggle with and the reason nursery rhymes are so crucial in early literacy development.
Rhyme is an important part of phonological awareness. Some teachers refer to it as “word families”, meaning the end sounds are the same. There are many word family groups. When a student can identify and read the rhyming part of a word, it makes it easier to read the whole word.
In this rhyming cars activity we look at different ending rhymes, not just one specific word family.
I have included two sheets with different CVC words, covering all the vowels. The words are common words early readers would have come across before, aiding in comprehension.

How to Use Rhyming Sheets
Simply look for two cars that fit together- two words that rhyme, and color them the same color so that they really look like they are a pair. It does not have to be only mono-colored, as long as the two rhyming cars look exactly the same.
Keep this no-prep rhyming cars activity on hand for your transportation theme for that day you just need a quick activity to fill a gap, or for your early finishers.
Your competent CVC word readers will easily be able to do this worksheet independently, leaving you with time to work with students that need a bit more help.
This is also a good assessment opportunity to see if your students understand the concept of rhyming/word families.
