Simple Rhyming Words
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 the children to say the items shown in the pictures (don't focus on the written words). Then get them to use thumbs up/down to show you whether or not they think the words rhyme. Then play the clip to see if they were right.
