Chalk Talk: The Importance of Teaching Nursery Rhymes to Early Readers
Many educational studies have shown that when children are taught nursery rhymes or hear songs and rhyming poems at an early age, their skills in phonemic awareness and reading readiness are greatly enhanced. As phonemic awareness can be defined as “an awareness of sounds in spoken words,” children hear the cadence of the rhythms and the patterns of the words in the nursery rhymes. Children connect with the nursery rhymes and lyrical rhyming poems. The sing-song and often silly verses make it fun for the child to understand the concept of the story. This awareness of sounds according to the research can be a strong predictor to reading readiness and future reading success.
