Talk about rhyming words with your child. Explain to them that a rhyme is made when two words sound similar like cat and hat. Listen to this reading of Frog on a Log. Ask your child to listen for rhyming words as they listen to the reading. Point them out to your child. After the video ask your child if they can think of any words that rhyme. You can prompt them by asking “Can you think of what rhymes with _____?” Be sure to give them clues if needed.
Frogs can jump and leap quite far while toads hop or crawl. Can you leap like a frog? How far can you leap? Use a tape measure to measure the distance from your child’s take off and landing spot.
