Chalk Talk: The Importance of Teaching Nursery Rhymes to Early Readers
Recently several educational studies have studied sounds and young children. Their studies have shown that when young children are taught nursery rhymes, or hear songs or rhyming poems, their skills in phonemic awareness and reading readiness are greatly enhanced. The definition of phonemic awareness is "an awareness of sounds in spoken words." Young children clearly hear the cadence of the rhythms and the patterns of the words in the nursery rhymes. The 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.
