The Oxford Children’s Rhyming Dictionary is the perfect tool to help children write their own poetry.
The alphabetical list of words that rhyme and index of sounds make it simple to find a rhyme, as well as reinforcing spelling skills. These are accompanied by lively illustrations, and amusing poems by John Foster. Engaging activities at the back of the book explain many types of rhymes, from raps and chants to limericks and couplets. These are combined with activities, tips and prompts which encourage children to get writing their own verse!
Developing language and creative writing skills, and directly supporting the curriculum’s emphasis on reading and writing poetry, this is the essential guide to rhyme for children in primary school.
Oxford Children’s Dictionaries are created using language research drawn from the Oxford Corpus to help children develop their vocabulary and understanding, with age-appropriate definitions carefully levelled for different reading stages.
