Eastbay REAP- Rhyming in early childhood 17th Sept 2016

This session will build on from the first workshop which looked at speech and language development. Rhyming, which is part of phonological awareness, “tuning into sounds” is such an important skill for young children to develop before school, as it helps underpin formal literacy learning.
Te Whariki- p76 references this- ……”a playful interest in repetitive sounds and words (alliteration) rhythm and rhyme.”
We will also look at writing learning stories around rhyme, rhyming storybooks, nursery rhymes and other simple children’s poetry, plus some free downloadable resources online.
