Rhyming Words

If two words end with the same sound (vowel or vowel- consonant) they rhyme. Sometimes poets and song writers will take a little license and use words that almost rhyme; the final sounds are similar but not exactly alike.

There are four words that follow each numbered word. Underline the word that does not exactly rhyme with the others. You may use a dictionary to help you when needed.

1. clues choose loose lose news


2. plate grade great weight bait


3. thumb some hummed slum come


4. day sleigh wave clay whey


5. roam comb home loan foam


6. told rolled goal fold doled


7. fleas trees breeze please lease
