Words that sound the same at the end. “Cat, hat these two rhyme. Cat, hat these two rhyme. Cat, hat these two rhyme. They sound the same at the end!”
There are so many books filled with rhyming words, especially Dr. Seuss words. While reading with your child see what rhyming words you can find. While in the car, waiting somewhere, or walking through a store make up silly words that sound the same at the end (use your child’s name to start). Elephant, smelephant, welephant, kmelephant – They don’t have to be real words!
Practice counting aloud to 30. Too hard? Start with counting to 5 and keep building up as your child is ready. When you should you count? Whenever you have a chance! Count while washing your hands, count while waiting for the bus, count how many steps going up, count how many steps going down, count how many houses, count how many cars.
When your child is ready count backwards from 10. Again start small, we count backwards from 5 a lot in class while waiting for everyone to settle down!
