Rhyming Words

Rhyming words help children remember words more easily. Kids think playing with words that rhyme is fun, so they stay engaged in learning longer. Rhyme also helps them learn about language.

They learn about word families and how words are put together. Kids also begin learning about the patterns, rhythms, and structure of language through simple rhymes.
