Concept: Look for Same Sound Words
- Rhyming words are words that sound similar. There could be two or more than two words which end with the same sound.
- When you are trying to find out whether two words rhyme with one another, always listen carefully as you say the words. If the sound of the words is similar, they are rhyming words.
In the example above, Cat rhymes with Hat. Hence, we can call them rhyming words.
Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly used rhyming words

Why do we use rhyming words?
- Rhyming words are used in poems and chapters to make the text more interesting and pleasing to those listening to the poem.
- These words also help in memorizing the text more easily.
‘Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.'
In the above poem, ‘star’ and ‘are’ rhyme with each other, which makes it easier to remember the poem.
Don’t look at the spelling of the words to find out whether they are rhyming or not. Remember, not all rhyming words look alike.
- Sky – Pie
The words ‘sky’ and ‘Pie’ don’t have similar spellings, but they are rhyming words as they sound similar.
