Learning Words with Common Rimes.
Dwyer, Edward J.
An extensive research review by M. Adams (1990) led her to the conclusion that providing instruction and reinforcement in learning common rimes is highly beneficial in fostering growth in learning to read. While substantial amounts of reading, either independent or with partners, is critical in learning words with common rimes, focused study is also helpful. The Word Challenge Game offers such an opportunity for focused study. This paper presents the basic structure for the game with step-by-step details. The paper suggests that older students might work with younger students in the Word Challenge Game, and that the game could be a great activity for children and their parents to do at home. Appended is a list of common rimes and key words. (NKA)
