Rhyming Words in Pictures
This will take a bit of time for your class to find their pair, but all they have to do is find two pictures that rhyme. (Provide them with some of those gajillion catalogs you saved from the holidays.) Cut and glue to their journals (spiral notebooks), and then write the words on the pictures. Of course, this is 7 months into the school year. I'd never do something like this until I was certain the kids had a firm grasp of what rhyming words sound like. Plus this is a higher order learning/thinking skill.
Be careful. You will have some children who will do the "beginning letter" sounds, and end up with a boy and a ball as their pair. And remember, if a child tells you they don't know how to spell a word, have them sound it out and write what they hear.
