Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you can practise thinking of words that rhyme with each other.

 

 

 

Remember that for words to rhyme it is the sound of the word that is important, not the way that it is spelt. Listen to these lists of words. They all rhyme but they do not all have the same spelling patterns.

 

flower   power     sour         hour

bird       heard      absurd     third

tree        me          agree       she

 

You may need a dictionary to help you spell some words.

Write as many words as you can think of that rhyme with year.

Write as many words as you can think of that rhyme with rose.

A word with more than one syllable can still rhyme with a one-syllable word.

e.g.  bough and anyhow. These both end with the 'ow' sound:

 

Write as many words as you can think of that rhyme with cow.

Write as many words as you can think of that rhyme with float.
