How to Teach a Rhyme

Rhymes encourage learning the names of things, hearing smaller sounds in words, and telling stories. Teach your child your favourite nursery rhyme (or little diddy) today!

Here's how:

Say the rhyme through, demonstrating the actions with a child. Children love having their faces touched and the eye contact.

Focus on the words - say each line and have your child repeat after you. Make sure to repeat the rhyme lots!

Focus on the actions - actions will help your child remember the rhyme.

Remember, some rhymes will be easy to learn and other will be hard. You will need lots of patience when teaching new rhymes.

Does anyone have a cute rhyme to share with blog readers?
