Rhyming Folders. A way to work on phonological awarentess is to "start with rhyming and syllable segmentation for children with very low levels of PA" (Paul, R., & Norbury, C, C. 2012, pg. 513). Furthermore, Seheule & Boudreau list rhyming activities: judging if two words rhyme, matching two words that rhyme (as cited in, Paul, R., & Norbury, C, C. 2012, pg. 513, para. 2)
Rhyming Folders: match two #rhyming words with yarn and velcro. Clever!
