What are Rhyming Words?

Rhyming words are words that have the same sound at the ends of the words. So that words like bat and cat have the same sound at the end.

The rainbow matching words are great for reviewing rhymes for CVC, CVCC and CVCe

Each of the rainbow matching puzzles has two pictures of ryhming words on a rainbow. I recommend printing the cards on cardstock and laminating them. It helps them last longer if little hands will be using them.
