Rhyme and Move
Teaching the Identification of Rhyming Words
Jack Hartmann

This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Shake, Rattle n' Read.

Rhyme & move, listen carefully
Rhyme & move, right to the beat

Clap, clap your hands when I say words that rhyme
Clap, clap when I say words that rhyme
Shake, shake, no when the words don’t rhyme
Shake, shake when the words don’t rhyme

Hand -- stand
Tree -- knee
tree -- swing
Sun -- run
Walk -- talk
Run -- slide
Pig -- dig

Repeat Chorus

Go -- slow
Fly -- cry
Car -- truck
Jelly -- smelly
Rhyme -- rainbow
Rhyme -- dime
Hat -- bug

Repeat Chorus


Teaching Tips from Jack Hartmann:
     Sing along with the chorus then follow the suggested movements. Clap, clap when the words rhyme, and shake, shake your body “no” when the words don’t rhyme. Everyone will be moving, dancing & thinking!
     In Version 2 of this song, you make up your own words that rhyme and that don’t. Then, dance and move to the song. There are sets of 7 words that follow the same
design as in Version 1.  Have fun!
