This product is proudly assembled and packaged by the people of The Ark, a community organization dedicated to providing services for persons with special challenges.

Introduce the Concept....
The green cards have two answers selected to introduce the game

The green cards are used to introduce the activity. Because two of the answers are already circled, the person can read the answers, recognize that they rhyme and choose the rhyming answer for the third phrase more easily. Once the answer has been circled, use the phrases to encourage conversation and memories. Talk about the other suggested answers and see where that leads! Try to find more words that rhyme.

Add More Challenge...
Add challenge with only one answer pre-selected

The yellow cards have the answer to only the first phrase circled. This adds more challenge to the activity because there is no starting rhyme.

Do it With No Clues...
Do it with no pre-selected answers

Once the person is ready for even more challenge it is time to move on to the white cards, which offer no clues. The instructions describe how to ensure that the person does not become frustrated and to guide them to success.

When Done, Put Them Away...
Wipe clean, ready for the next time

When done, ask the person to help you by cleaning the marker off the cards, sorting them by color and putting them away in the case. You will be amazed by the look of satisfaction from helping out by putting the game away on their own!
