Rhyming Raindrops

I don't know why but  my kids are having some trouble figuring out rhyming words.  I found a simple worksheet in my files titled "Rhyming Raindrops" and it was a cut and paste -og family activity.  They were to cut out the raindrops and paste the words that were part of the -og family.  When I saw this I came up with an idea.  We would make this activity MUCH BIGGER!!!  We matched rhyming words in the pocket chart, then they matched rhyming words printed on blue raindrops.  After the whole group lesson each student chose a rhyming word pair to draw the pictures and write the word on their own large raindrop.  We then tied them to an umbrella and suspended it from the ceiling in the hall!  

I still want to add a cardboard boy holding onto the umbrella named, "Tyler the Rhymer".  I am so excited about this activity!  Plus, it's always nice to get compliments about my "cute umbrella!"
