Rhyming Word Bridge Map

I saw this rhyming Bridge Map idea on Melissa's blog the other day and had to do it with my class. We read the book I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! Then we charted all of the rhyming pairs we could think of and made a Bridge Map to show them.

What a cute idea! I've had that book for a couple of years now and it's always been a favorite but I love the way your kids recorded the rhyming words. Very cool :)

Uhm. Please tell me what a "bridge map" is. Thanks so much!

A bridge map is a type of thinking map. The bridge map shows the relationship between two ideas. You identify the relating factor between the pairs shared. The top relates to the bottom in the same away across all of the examples. I hope this makes sense. You can google thinking maps and bridge maps to learn more.

Do you have any ideas about what I could do to work one on one with a student who has trouble rhyming? I have tried many different approaches and she still is not getting it. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

How exactly did you teach this lesson? I see the pictures were drawn by the students so how do you work that in? Have you worked on rhyming before? Thanks!

This was not my first rhyming lesson. We have been working on it for awhile. We made a list of rhyming words as a whole group. Then the kids chose the words they wanted to illustrate. I made simple sketches on scrap paper for them to look at if they were unsure about what to draw.I hope this helps.
