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!
