Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

If two words rhyme with each other it means that the ends of the words sound the same.

 

bow

 

throw

 

These words both end in -ow, so they rhyme. It doesn't matter if one word is longer than the other.

 

In this worksheet you can practise reading words and deciding whether they rhyme or not.
