This You Tube clip shows pairs of words and then indicates whether or not they rhyme. Turn off the annoying background music, as it serves no purpose. When a pair of pictures is shown, pause the clip and  get your child to say the items shown in the pictures (don't focus on the written words). Then ask him/her whether or not the words rhyme. Then play the clip to see if they were right.
