Help your students become shining stars with this lesson that uses "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" to teach them about rhyming pairs. Students will make the connection between spoken and printed words while making a dazzling star.
Begin by asking students to recite Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
Ask students if they can identify any rhyming words. Remind students that rhyming words have the same ending sound. If students have difficulty identifying the rhyme, slowly repeat the rhyme, accentuating the words "star" and "are."
