This is our last week learning our talking story Monkey Puzzle and we are looking at rhming words. The story has many rhyming words in it. If you have the story at home try to spot them in the text. if you don't have the book at home, use this link to listen to the story and record how many rhyming pairs you can hear. 

We have some animals that we would like you to match to the rhyming adjective. PDF below. 

Challenge: Can you write a sentence about each pair? Eg The pig was big.

For Big Write this week, we would like you to use the rhyming mat you made from the activity above to write some sentences that the little monkey might say if he met those animals.

For example, I met a pig but he was too big.
