ARE YOU GOOD

AT RHYMING?

By Josie Whitehead

Josie 2 Our Language Main Poetry Index Try: Riddle-me-Ree

A stupid old woman from Bath

Said: “Today I won’t tread on the pavement,”

    So she walked on the road

    And she trod on a frog -

And it was then that she started to laugh.

 

Though this  poem’s a terrible mess

I can rhyme as I’m sure you will know

    But, what about you -

    Well, can you rhyme also?

I’m quite sure you’re all shouting “yes."

 

 

A QUESTION FOR YOU

 

You will probably know the correct rhyming words, but can you see that one of the first lines of a verse doesn't rhyme with the last line perfectly?  Which one?  Done deliberately to catch you.

 

RHYMING GAME

 

Then look at the words below and match them in rhyming pairs.  See who can be the first to finish in your class.

 

grey; though; sky; cough; me; flew; glue; so; rhyme; bed; pay; know; time; say; tread; pay; off; tea; die; toe;

 

Your teacher will read the words with you if you are very young, of course.
