rhyming words : swimming with a mermaid

rhyming words : swimming with a mermaid

This resource accompanies a Power Point presentation but could be used in isolation. Pupils are asked to group words according to how they rhyme and then they are required to add more of their own choosing. The words can then be used to create a poem of their own about swimming with a mermaid. This resource is useful for spelling and phonics work and will compliment the study of oceans and seas.Suitable for ages 7+
