Make a Rhyme, Make a Move

Teaching the Recognition of Rhyming Words
Jack Hartmann, M.A.

This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Hip-Hop AlphaBop 2.

Suggested activities from Jack Hartmann:
This song teaches an awareness of rhyming sounds and builds listening skills.
Follow the hip-hop moves if the words rhyme, and the other moves if they don't. Use the open version of this song (included in the CD) so pairs or teams of students can insert their own selections of words that rhyme and words that don't rhyme.


Make a rhyme, make a move
Do it to the beat
Make a rhyme, make a move
Have some fun with me

When two words rhyme,
Make a move like this:
Two thumbs, crisscross...

When the words don't rhyme
Make a move like this:
One are out front...
...Say, "No way. No way."

cat    —    hat
That rhymes
That rhymes...

...boat    —    car
No way. No way...


(More pairs of words are presented)
