Singing songs and reciting rhymes help children recognize and work with sounds in spoken language. We are able to hear the smaller sounds in words when singing because there is a distinct note for each syllable. This practice will help children sound out words when they learn to read. Recognizing rhythm and rhymes helps children anticipate what will come next, which helps prepare them to make predictions when reading.
Here is a fun activity you can do with your little one to get them singing and moving to the rhythm. Help them learn to listen for and keep a steady beat.
