The Rhyming Tree

This is a very simple language arts/art activity. Basically, you take the leaf outlines below and give one sheet to each child. (Click on the picture to get a full size 8.5x11 in. picture you can save and print.)

For beginners, have the students put two rhyming words on 2 leaves. (See examples below.)

Then have them color each set of rhyming words the same color. You can limit the number of rhyming pairs by telling them which colors they can use (red, orange, yellow, green, brown). 

Then, have them trace their arm and open hand onto a sheet of drawing or construction paper to resemble a tree. (See my pathetic example below. :)

Cut out the leaves and glue onto The Rhyming Tree.

Now this is where you can get creative. You can also make this an Opposites Tree. Or anything where you would get a pair of different colored fall leaves to place on the tree.

You're only restricted by your imagination!

  1. Hi Linda, wanted to pass along a website for consideration under your educational sites list. I started about 2.5 years ago in response to my son, then a toddler, learning ABC's and more on YouTube. I have developed 3d animated educational videos for kids ever since. Please take a look and let me know what you think. -Matt
