More on reading

To work on developing your child's ability through "phonics" you can play the game called "Rhyme It".

Rhyming games help children develop a sensitivity to sound so they can hear the similarities and differences between words. The words cat, hat and bat for example, have the same ending sound and visual patterns.

To play the game:
Begin a rhyming phrase, but leave out the final rhyming word
The old gray cat
caught a great big ___________.

Rat, bat, hat are some words that would do.

Read rhymes to your child. Mother Goose stories has a lot of rhyming. You remember some of these.
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall ....

Pick out the rhyming words.

It's raining. It's pouring. The old man is ____________________.
