Activities in this book expand on nine familiar nursery rhymes and are designed to support early phonemic awareness, early reading and writing experiences. Beginning with chanting, singing and movement, early learners can transfer sentence segments that become the basis of successful large group reading. Equipped with these experiences, beginning readers can unlock the nearly 500 words that can be created from 37 rimes in the English language.

Research indicates that early experiences with rhyme has a strong impact on the development of abstract word processing skills , language acquisition and reading readiness skills.  Patterns found in nursery rhymes establish a familiar foundation which strengthens talk-print linkages.  Playing with rhymes and sounds helps to prepare the child for success as a reader.

Included in this book are word slides, readers theatre scripts for take home reading programs, teaching suggestions and text reconstruction strips.
