VocabularySpellingCity provides the tools you need to help your students get ahead in the rhyming race! Here, you can find word lists with sets of rhyming words for elementary school, middle school, and high school levels. Students learn to work and play with words that rhyme through online games, activities, and printable worksheets.
Learning How to Recognize Rhyming Words
Nursery Rhymes bring the sound and rhythm of rhyme to very young children. But it is when children enter school that they begin to make the connection between how words sound and how words are spelled. When working with rhyming words, students make the discovery that words that rhyme often have endings that are spelled the same. VocabularySpellingCity helps make that knowledge gel with pre-made rhyming word lists and games like Audio Word Match. As students hear and see the words, they make connections between rhymes and spelling.
Rhyming Word Games
Children enjoy learning about rhyming words by playing fun online games. The Enrichment Strategies offer two great rhyming riddle games for your students to enjoy. Hig Pig uses one-syllable rhyming words and Higgy Piggy uses two-syllable rhyming words. Students must answer the riddle with two rhyming words. It's great brain exercise for a single student or the whole class! More games like these are available on our sister site, VocabularyFun.
Ready-Made Rhyming Word Lists
VocabularySpellingCity's rhyming word lists are leveled for different ages. That means that if you're teaching rhyming words in Kindergarten, we have a list for you, and if your high school students need rhyming word examples for a poetry-writing unit, we have lists for that, too. You can import VocabularySpellingCity lists to your account and, once there, customize them to match your curriculum goals or weekly vocabulary lists.

Meeting the Common Core State Standards for Phonics and Word Recognition
As early as Kindergarten, the Common Core State Standards require that students "Recognize and produce rhyming words." And as students learn to read they can use their rhyming skills to help them meet other Common Core State Standards, such as in first grade when they mist "Know the spelling-sound correspondences for common consonant digraphs." A strong knowledge of rhyming vocabulary and word sound patterns will help your students in spelling and writing iat the elementary, middle,and high school level.
