*NOTE: This is a kindergarten skill, but we’re sharing here because many preschoolers are advanced. If your preschooler is ready for this skill, feel free to teach it!
If you’d like to build your preschooler’s literacy skills, make sure that you don’t forget to help them produce 1-2 syllable rhymes.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD PRODUCE 1-2 SYLLABLE RHYMES
Experience with rhyming words, through nursery rhymes, rhyming stories, and songs, builds a child’s rhyme awareness. This is important because rhyming plays a big role in early literacy skills. It teaches children about the sound of language and introduces them to word families.
Sharing and reciting rhymes is not only fun, but is an essential pre-reading skill. A child’s ability to identify and produce rhymes is predictive of how easily they will learn to read.
