Rhythm and Rhyme
21 May 2018Add to My Folder
The ability to detect the rhythms of spoken language and identify rhyming words is one of the foundations of literacy development. Try these fun little activities to help children of all ages develop their awareness of rhythm and rhyme.
What to do
Start off by clapping names of one syllable (Kim, Joe, Ben). Move on to clapping names with two syllables (An-dre, Phoe-be, Ma-lik) and three syllables (Will-i-am, Sam-an-tha, Mad-i-son). Combine the names in different ways to make repeating rhythms:
