Erase-a-Rhymes, Phonemic Awareness

Erase-a-Rhymes are rhymes that you draw on the board.  As you read the rhyme aloud, your students erase.  Color-a-Rhymes work the same way, but instead of erasing as you read, students color.

    Hey Jessica, Could you elaborate a little more about these rhymes. What do you mean “students erase”? Or, “you draw on the board” I am seeing that I would draw a hill and then what? Thanks so much.

      It’s kind of a call and response lesson. You give the directions (poem) line by line and they respond by drawing or erasing. If it’s and Erase A Rhyme you have to have it drawn ahead of time and they respond by erasing. If it’s a draw a rhyme they respond by drawing. Hope this helps!!
