Picture of Rhyming Word Collage
Looking for something to do with all those weekly ads?  How about use it for an educational themed collage.  This ible will show you how to make a Rhyming Word Collage with all those weekly ads lying around.

Materials:
Weekly Ads
Card Stock (small pieces will suffice)
Pen / Crayon / Marker / Pencil
Glue
Scrap Paper

Through this project:
  • Students will be able to cut small images
  • Students will be able to write the names of objects
  • Students will be able to choose rhyming pairs
  • Students will be able to Glue a collage of rhyming pairs

Step 1: Look and Write

Look through the weekly ads and write down the names of things that you see.  I only ended up needing to look through 3 ads to get enough words for my collage. 

Step 2: Find Rhymes

Once I had a decent sized list I looked for words that rhymed and circled them.  Then I went back to the advertisements and found those pictures.  I ended up with hair / chair / bear.  I wanted to add at least one more picture so I thought of wear and found a picture of a girl wearing an outfit.

Step 3: Cut and Glue

Cut and Glue the rhymes out and onto the card stock like a collage.

Step 4: Label

On the back of the card I wrote the title "Rhymes with Tear," choosing a word that wasn't on the list on purpose.  Then I wrote in the words that I found.

I have about a million magazines and forgot all about collaging with my students. This will be particularly useful and fun for teaching English as a Second Language.
Thank you.

I like it! I hated making collages with my class, but the kids sure love doing them. They liked cutting things out; I disliked having a mountain of destroyed magazines and fluttery bits of glossy paper all over my floor. Fun fact: collages are great for getting kids to organize and describe phenomena. They can even be done with older students to describe characters in literature, and a couple of issues of Sports Illustrated will yield an amazing set of Homeric collages.

Thanks! The good thing for me (for now) is that I home school so the extra paper bits are all over the students floors instead of my classroom floor. I thought this collage was great for the student I will be doing it with because it allows him to consider the sounds of the rhymes rather then how to spell the words. I also like the idea of using it as literary responses, I will keep that as a note in the back of my head.
