This activity is intended for early elementary grade students who are working on rhyming and finding patterns to understand why words rhyme! *independent use: 1st-2nd — note: students may require a tutorial on how to use the forum. It may also be easier to have student complete the assignment in small groups at a time that way an adult is able to help with any technical issues they may have in filling out the google forum.
This could be used as a pre-assessment to gauge what your students already know about rhyming or if they are already able to pick up patterns. It can then be used as a post assessment to see how much growth has happened at the end of a lesson or unit on rhyming. This activity could also be used within a kindergarten classroom and completed as a whole class in order to introduce the concept of rhyming.
When used as a pre-assessment, students in 1st grade are not expected to have a high knowledge of rhyming patterns. However, when being used as a post assessment students should have a better understanding of deciphering which words rhyme and which do not.
