Here at Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Enfield… we absolutely LOVE Stories & Rhymes!
WHY WE LOVE STORIES AND RHYMES:
1. Rhyming teaches children how language works. It helps them notice and work with the sounds within words.
2. Rhymes help children experience the rhythm of language. As they recite nursery rhymes they learn to speak with animated voices. Someday they’ll read with expression, too.
3. When children are familiar with a nursery rhyme or rhyming book, they learn to anticipate the rhyming word. This prepares them to make predictions when they read, another important reading skill!
