Reading with the Rays: Rhyme time



Raymond_7 Rhyme time

Rays pitcher Dan Wheelerâ??s sonâ??s favorite book Eight Silly Monkeys by Steve Haskamp has a lot of rhyming words in it. Rhyming words have similar sounds such as chair, stair and cat, hat. Songs are often composed of rhyming words. Often songs are based on everyday observations. The daily newspaper is a great resource for writing found poetry or songs. Choose one interesting story from the St. Petersburg Times and write a song using words you took from the article. Illustrate your song and share it with your family and friends.
