Rimando en español- Spanish rhymes, mini stories, games, and much more

Updated: Sep 25, 2023

Students need to learn to identify and and produce rhyming words. Teaching rhyming words in Spanish can be a challenge when you don't have the necessary tools. You first need to introduce the concept of "rimas" to your students. Begin with easy words. Teach them that "rimas" end with the same sound.

Rimando con nombres is how I begin to teach rhyming words. Students practice rhyming with their names. They can try to find another name or word that rhymes with their name. These cards with rhyming names might be able to help. Some of these names are not as common and might be new to them. Allow them to make up words that rhyme with their names if they can't find a real word to rhyme with their name.

This Rimas resource is my favorite and the one I use to teach rhyming words as a whole group. Model making the sounds and matching the rhyming word. These rhyming cards have the pictures and the words. These cards are perfect for creating a rhyming word wall. They can also be placed in a center or workstation. This resource includes more than 100 pairs of rhyming words for students to get plenty of practice.

Then, I introduce a digital game, Escoge la rima. Students need to find the rhyming word among 3 other words. All of these have pictures for little ones that aren't reading yet. This game can also be assigned as independent work through Google Classroom for older (first grade) students. This game includes 40 slides. It can easily be divided up and assigned in 3 or even 4 parts.

Mas Rimas can be assigned as a workstation. There are so many cards in this set, that I like to print these cards in different colors. This way I can assign one set the first week and keep the sets separated. This resource includes more than 300 pairs of rhyming words.

Busca la rima is another resource that can be assigned as an independent workstation or homework. This one is a little more hands on. Students will cut out the words on the bottom and glue them next to the rhyming word. Students enjoy this activity and it helps monitor their progress.

Finally, Rimas mini cuentitos is for my more advanced students. I assign these rhyming mini stories, students read the story and circle the rhyming words. Just about every story has 5 sentences. Each sentence includes rhyming words. Students will circle the rhyming words. If there are two different sets of rhyming words, you can have them circle them in a different color. With these mini stories, I like to model the first story for them. Then we do one or two together as a whole group. After that, I go ahead and assign them as independent practice. There are 20 stories total.

By the time your students have used this bundle of resources, they will be experts at identifying, finding and creating their own rhyming words.

Happy Planning!
