Early Literacy Tip – Rhymes are a valuable tool in preparing young children for reading. “Rhymes can happen anywhere. You can make them up as you walk down the street. For example, “Step one, step two, look at my shoe.” You and your toddler can repeat rhymes during daily activities. For example, try “Rub a dub, dub, three men in a tub” during baths.” from Center for Early Literacy Learning http://www.earlyliteracylearning.org/cellpract_parent/toddler/PG_1_T_RhymRhyth_WM.pdf.
