If you want your child to be a successful reader (and of course you do!), it’s so important that you know how to teach your child to rhyme.
1. The most enjoyable and efficient way to teach rhyming is to read, read, and read some more nursery rhymes. They are easy to find and fun to learn. Get them out, and make them a regular part of your child’s infancy, toddlerhood, and preschool years.
a. Make a recording of yourself reading nursery rhymes and play them in the car. I did this before my oldest could talk, and it was a listening favorite for several years.
b. When your child knows her nursery rhymes, have her listen as you recite a familiar rhyme with one mistake. Then have her say “Beep Beep!” or play a rhythm instrument when she hears the wrong word. Let her supply the right one.
