Recognizing rhyming words is the first level of understanding phonemic awareness. Rhyming requires that children listen closely for sounds within words. Children who recognize rhyme learn that words are made up of separate parts. Using classic nursery rhymes your student will focus on listening for word endings and begin to understand word patterns. Research shows the being familiar with nursery rhymes and especially understanding the patterns in them helps lead to reading mastery.
In this Raising Reader unit students will identify and manipulate words to find and create patterns using nursery rhymes.
The following nursery rhymes are used in this unit:
Hickory Dickory Dock
Jack and Jill
Little Boy Blue
The Itsy Bitsy Spider
Hey Diddle Diddle
Students will have fun reading, story sequencing, identifying patterns, creating silly rhymes and more!
