  1. Michelle,

    I'd like to add a video game: Rhymin' Simon: You and your followers can find out about it at If children are just learning to rhyme, you can help them by drawing your thumbs up in the right direction. You can also help them learn how to rhyme by asking them to look for mouth movements that are the same at the ends of words (use a mirror) and by over emphasizing the rhyming part of the word apart from the "onset" (beginning of the word). Children will become rhyming masters and have a lot of fun too!
