Help your child be ready to read by practicing early literacy skills. Rhymes help children hear the different parts of words.
You can help by:
- Saying nursery rhymes
- Reading books that rhyme
- Saying nonsense rhymes
Activities for Babies and Toddlers: Use your child's name to make a rhyme. The rhyming word does not have to make sense. For example:
Your name is Jerry
And it rhymes with berry!
Your name is Jessica
And it rhymes with lessica!
