Rhyming words sound the same and have the same ending sound.

Teaching phonics and rhyming to a child develops their phonological awareness skills. These skills play an important part in becoming a good reader.

But what exactly is phonological awareness?

It is the awareness of the sound structure of words. When children have phonological awareness, they understand that is language is made up of sounds, words, and syllables. This awareness helps children access the written words and develop good reading skills. It also allows the child to manipulate and play with words and sounds.

The first level of phonological awareness is rhyming.
