As an introduction, I read the book "Ten Little Mummies," by Philip Yates, which had a rhyme on each page. Afterwards we briefly reviewed some rhymes that were in the book.

In creating their own rhymes students would have had to choose their own words. Because this might be challenging for many of the first graders, I created rhyming words with pictures and put them up on a wall.

Students were given a word and asked to find the word that rhymed with the one they had. Almost all the students were able to do the task. After making their match students went back to their seats where they wrote a sentence using the two matching words as well as illustrated the sentence.
