Rhyming Game

Who’s it for?

Designed for children of any age who are keen to improve their reading and spelling.

What does it do?

This app contains 34 rhyming pairs of words, 68 words in total. Children can use it to practise recognising rhyming letter patterns, both aurally and in writing. The words can be read by children who know the sounds of the letters of the alphabet, plus the sounds made by combinations of letters: ch, sh and ck. In addition to the simple three letter words like cat, there are a number of four letter words which begin or end with two consonants, like tent and twin.



Get even better at reading

Help Biff catch the words. 6 flashcards are shown on screen and a word is played. Find and tap on a word that rhymes with the word that was read out to add it to Biff’s bucket. A more advanced game for children who can read or sound out a full word.

All cards

Use all the cards to practice spelling and reading

Familiarise yourself with the words in the app, flipping through the all cards section. A microphone button lets you record your children so that they can listen back to the words as they’re reading them. Use the cards as a prompt for reading or spelling tests outside of the prescribed app games.

Word builder

An advanced game to help practice spelling

One of the words on the flashcards will be split into separate letters. An audio prompt will play. Rearrange the letters into an order to make a word that rhymes with the word that was read aloud. A more advanced game for children who are beginning to spell independently.

Sound snap

This game helps learn phonics sounds through comparison

Help kipper collect matching words. Two flashcards are shown face up on screen. Snap if they rhyme (for example ‘six’ and ‘mix’), or mark as a mismatch if they do not. This game helps learn sounds through comparison.
