2017年4月2日「モバイル英語学習」第408号(小学校英語教育):Rhyming Words

All these words rhyme. That means that they have the same last sound. Try to pronounce them correctly.

Brown cow now.
Cut nut but.
Cat sat mat.
Sit bit hit.

Sometimes the spelling is different, but the sound is the same. All the following groups of words rhyme:

Who knew you flew?

Son won one sun.

Enough tough stuff.

I’ll smile aisle.

Pale male veil.

More store floor.
