This activity targets your child’s phonological awareness skills, or their ability to break words into smaller ‘chunks’ of sound. Tuning in to rhyme is a fun way to build your child’s awareness of sounds in words. Words that have the same sounds from the vowel to the end are called rhyming words, such as “hot” and “spot” or “rough” and “stuff.”

This activity is based on the traditional song, ‘There was an old lady who swallowed a fly,’ Several renditions of this song can be found online. You are encouraged to watch the video below, to both support your understanding of the activity and to see the activity demonstrated by an adult and child.
