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.
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.
