Fun Rhyme "Snatcher" Games

Fun Kindergarten Rhyming Games. #Rhyme #RainbowLilyDesigns #education

My class love rhyming games, come to think about it, they love any game!
These "Rhyme Snatcher" games came about because of that love for both rhyming and games. I wanted something that could eventually be independantly done in a small group 
(after I had taught them to play appropriately, of course).

It all started with my dog. Yep, my dog. See, I had the idea of a new rhyme game in the back of my head, but I was stumped for a catchy name. Then one day I was telling my preppies about how my dog loves to pick up EVERY SINGLE leaf when we go for a walk. I showed them a photo of her carrying around a whole heap of leaves in her mouth. That's when one boy yelled out, "She's the leaf snatcher!" 

And the name stuck. 

Every teacher can adapt games to suit their class, but my preppies play this game by turning over a card and if it rhymes with their card they get to keep it. The winner is the first with all 4 rhyming cards or the one with the most cards when the time is up. You could also use the cards as flashcards, a word wall, memory games etc.
Excellent activity to go with the fall theme.  #rhyme #kindergarten #RainbowLilyDesigns

The pack includes 40 cards each with a different CVC word (4 from each word family). I laminated mine for durability. It also includes instructions and worksheets. The worksheets are differentiated so all your students can complete at their level. The simplest one is for students to record their words, the next is for students to record words and then generate more that rhyme, and the more challenging worksheet is for students to record, generate more and then put these into sentences. 

My class loved them so much I had to make more, so Cupcake Snatcher, Treasure Snatcher and Present Snatcher were born!

All the Rhyme Snatcher games work the same and include cards and worksheets. They just focus on a different set of words and have a different theme. 
Cupcake Snatcher uses of digraphs and blends. Treasure Snatcher  uses of CVCe words and Present Snatcher uses CVC words but with a christmas theme.
