Fox in Socks is this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids pick. Playing with rhymes was Dr. Seuss’s signature, and this book is no exception. So I decided to create the opportunity for kids to play around with rhymes themselves with this fun matching game.
Play a Matching Game to Practice Rhyming
This game is very simple! Download the printable, and print it out two sided. I created some sample rhymes for the first double-sided page. I also created a double-sided page with blank squares where you can write or draw your own rhymes.
You can play a standard matching game, or use the cards for memory or even a quick game of Go Fish.
My personal favorite way to use these cards is to use them to come up with silly rhymes. For example:
- The red fox rocks socks.
- The fat bat sat on the mat.
- The fine sign is mine.
- The red sled went to bed.
I created a second printable featuring a few rhyme filler words, as well as plenty of space for you to fill in your own.
I recommend laminating these, if you plan to use them long-term.
I made the socks for these filler words green, so that you can create a game: grab a few rhyme cards, and a few filler cards, and see how many sentences you can create. It’s like scrabble for rhyming!
