Basics on the topic Onsets & Rimes
Let's learn all about onsets and rimes. An onset is the beginning part of a word, for example, the c in cat. A rime is the end part of a word, for example, the at in cat. When we put the onset and rime together we get the word cat. Learning about onsets and rimes can help us with our reading and develop our phonics knowledge.
