Getting a sense of rhyme and rhythm is an essential part of learning how to read. Children benefit from hearing rhymes, familiar rhymes and new rhymes. Have fun reading and singing together.
It can be beneficial to read it yourself first and then read it to your child.
You could clap along or bang a pan to the rhythm of the rhyme.
If you read a familiar rhyme can you pause at the end of the line and can your child fill in the rhyming word? You could ask your child to clap when they hear a rhyming word.
Maybe at the end of the week you could perform your favourite rhyme for a family member?
