    I'll admit... I'm stumped...

    Trying to finish 1st graders homework....

    Need words ending in -em that rhyme....they started with the words:


    them
    hem

    I added stem,gem, item? and there are more spaces but I can't think of any but requiem...kinda big for a 1st grader.


    Anymore you can think of?

    oh duh... tandem, totem, emblem.... geesh... I had no brain tonight.

    I just sat there looking at the paper blankly. It was a little hard to concentrate with my 1st grader saying, pem, plem, dem, whem...hey, mommy, are those words? and then my 3 yr. old copying her big sister. sssshhhh. [​IMG] mommy's trying to think.

    And thanks ladies... it's just what I needed. I tried googling but the searches I was coming up with were for foreign languages... wonder if those would count? [​IMG]

    me,
    gretch
