Classic rhyming songs and others a great way to expose your child to rhyming, a very important pre-reading skill. You can either teach these songs to your child yourself and purchase them on a CD or DVD that you allow your child to listen to or watch. It is important to take some time to recite these rhymes with your child. Make it fun, make this an activity you do in the car, or at bedtime, allowing it to become a part of your daily routine. You can even sing along with the CD together.
More fun and creative ideas:
Rhyming allows your child to become more aware of the sounds in language. Through rhyming games your child will focus on sounds and learn to distinguish one from another. Even before learning to read having activities such as these as a part of a child’s routine will help them to obtain the skills that they will need when it does come time for them to learn to read.
