Dust Bunnies named Ed, Ned, Ted, and Bob like to rhyme all the time. Except for Bob. He can't seem to rhyme since it is his job to watch out for the broom and vacuum cleaner and those words don't quite fit with the rhymes of Ed, Ned, and Ted. Nonetheless, these dust bunnies will humor young students who are beginning to learn how language works. Rhyming Dust Bunnies is a great read aloud to use for teaching phonemic awareness. You could create a dust bunny corner with word families that you have learned posted next to the bunnies. See Betsy Bird's review below (Fuse #8) for ideas on how to create the dust bunnies.
