Developing phonemic awareness early is an important part of learning to read. It teaches children how language works and helps them notice and work with sounds within sounds.
Children can begin to predict text. This supports children seeing themselves as readers early.
Rhyme helps children experience the rhythm of language and can support reading with expression down the track.
Rhyme is an important factor for learning to write. It assists a child to understand language and spelling patterns, and common sound elements. For example, word families.
It helps children develop their oral language skills and studies have shown it can even help children improve their recall and memorisation skills!
Rhyme is so much fun!
