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. praise ways haze place sleighs


2. slam ham clan lamb cram


3. rude root stewed food glued


4. laugh half staff have gaffe


5. race base traced chase brace


6. beast feast greased pleased pieced


7. known cone loan shown home
