WHY? rhyming words, letter recognition, math concepts

WHAT? paper plates, rhyming pictures, markers, scissors, zip bag

HOW? Cut paper plates in half using puzzle designs similar to those
below. Glue pictures that rhyme on each half. Mix up the pieces.
Children say the words and match up the plates that rhyme. The game
is self-checking because the pieces will fit if they match the correct
pictures. Store pieces in a zip bag.
Hint! Start with 4 or 5 plates and add more as children become confident and successful.

















Use puzzlers for matching letters and sounds, numbers and number words, and compounds.
Use hearts, kites, pumpkins, or other seasonal shapes to make puzzlers.
