An important part of learning to read is learning about rhyming words. Why? Well there are a number of reasons:

a) it helps them to notice and work with sounds that are in words.

b) it helps them to predict what the next word could be in a sentence.

c) it can help them understand that words that rhyme often share common sounds e.g. cat and mat both end in -at or goat and boat both have -oat sounds in them. This will help them when it comes to writing.
