Let’s have some classic rhyming fun with a free rhyming coloring worksheet for prek, kindergarten, and first grade kids.

As you may already know, rhyming is a part of phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is the ability to isolate and manipulate individual sounds (phonemes) in words.

As kids begin to learn about rhyming words, they recognize and manipulate the ending sounds of words. This skill contributes to the development of phonemic awareness.

Combining Rhyming with Coloring

Rhyming and coloring are two fun skills children develop at a young age.

Around preschool, Prek, and Kindergarten, young children learn how to identify and produce rhyming patterns.

Furthermore, at this age, kids begin to take pride in their coloring abilities.

While one may say coloring is not a skill, you and I both know it is.

Coloring builds visual perception, visual discrimination, sense of colors, and fine motor skills.

The following free rhyming worksheet combines both rhyming and coloring for a fun learning experience.

Free Rhyming Worksheet

This printable rhyming worksheet is a great way for the kids to practice rhyming skills.

Even when my students did well producing rhyming words during whole group lessons, I often found they struggled with identifying rhyming picture sets.

This worksheet for rhyming practice is a fun way for them to identify rhyming pictures.

They simply look and say the name of the first picture in the row. Then, they identify the pictures that rhyme within the row.
