Rhyming is one of the most difficult skill to teach English learners. To help with this process we read the story/ song Down by the Bay and made super easy watermelons. Next each child dictated a rhyme from the story or a self invented rhyme and I wrote the rhyme on their watermelon.
To make the super easy watermelons give each student a piece of green construction paper. Have the students cut the corners off the paper until the water melon is the desired size. Each child can then paint green lines on their watermelons.
