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. Help your child succeed in reading by using the following rhyming families.

Our list of rhyming words is also great for using when playing Words with Friends or Scrabble. The words are listed using the suffix of the word and the rhyming words derived from it or words that are similar. All are listed from easiest to hardest and in alphabetical order.
