P1-3 Daily Greeting and Challenge.

Hello everyone. Your challenge for today is to play this rhyming game with someone at home:

Player 1 says a word e.g. “cat”.

Player 2 has to say a word that rhymes with that word e.g. “bat”.

Then swap, so Player 2 says a word and Player 1 has to say a word that rhymes with it. You can play this as many times as you like.

If this is quite easy, try to say 3 or 5 words that rhyme with each of your partner’s words.

Have fun!
