Before you begin, you may want some tips and tricks for introducing rhyme to kids. Check out this article about how to teach rhyming words to kids.
How to Assemble the Interactive Books
When you print the book, you will see that you need to do just a little bit of cutting. Each book contains a cover page and three additional pages. The cover and two of the pages need to be cut so that they are not as wide as the last page. Don’t worry, there are dotted lines to help you out with the cutting. Each book also includes three beginning letter cards that need to be cut out too.
You may want to laminate everything so that your book will be more durable. Place all the pages in order (the wide page goes on the bottom) and bind them together on the left side. You can use a binding machine…..but if you don’t have one staples will work well too.
Add hook and loop tape to the three squares on the back page and to the squares on each individual page. Finally, add hook and loop tape to the back of the letter cards. Kids should be able to attach the letter cards to the squares.
Using the Books
Use the books for literacy activities to work on a variety of concepts.
When completed, kids can select the correct letter to complete the CVC word on each page. The books provide practice with beginning sounds and will help your kids understand rhyming. The simple text on each page will also reinforce sight words.
