A concept known as 'phonemic awareness' has become a predictor of a child's success in learning you just read, and nursery rhymes really are a critical piece in supporting the development of this skill in small children. What is phonemic awareness? It is the hearing the discrete and individual sounds inside a word all night . the relevant skills combine and manipulate these sounds. A phoneme will be the smallest unit of sound in the English language and you will find 44 phonemes. As an example, the phrase cat comprises of three phonemes: the /c/ sound, the /a/ sound, and also the /t/ sound.

Study after study shows which a strong ability to hear these sounds within words is the greatest predictor of future reading ability. In their own book, Beginning to Read: Thinking and Understading about Print, Marilyn Jager Adams highlights that the lack of phonemic awareness is easily the most likely element in the failure to see proficiently (Adams,1990). "The best predictor of reading difficulty in kindergarten or first grade is the being unable to segment words and syllables into constituent sound units"(Lyon, 1995).

If you believe phonemic awareness only need to occur naturally through the early years as children learn how to speak, reconsider that thought. Though acquiring phonemic awareness is really a "natural" phenomenon, this acquisition will depend on the assumption children will be exposed to language rich with phonemic repetition. As more adults and kids spend time with gadgets, language development can take a back seat.

So... exactly how should we help children develop this understanding of language and sounds? Nursery rhymes are certainly one easy way. Comes from research conducted recently indicated that utilizing nursery rhymes improved children's phonological awareness and enhanced their sensitivity to individual phonemes and rhyme, enhancing the growth and development of phonemic skills (Harper, 2011).

Take into account the nursery rhyme Pat-a-Cake:

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man.
Bake me a cake as fast as it is possible to,
Pat it and prick it and mark it having a B,
And bake it within the oven for baby and me.

When singing this rhyme, remove the sounds of the words and punctuate the sounds with additional emphasis.

Here is a few more you'll remember:

Hickory, dickory, dock
A button ran the clock.
Time struck one
The mouse ran down
Hickory, dickory, dock.

Hickory, dickory, dock
The mouse ran in the clock.
The hands of time struck two
And down he flew
Hickory, dickory, dock.

Add the little toe movements using this one:

This little piggy went along to market
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy had roast beef
This little piggy had none
And this little piggy went "Wee, wee, wee" completely home!

Later, add songs through which children offer an possibility to invent their particular rhyming pairs. This can be sung to the tune of "If You're Happy so you Know It". Help your child imagine words to insert (cat/mat, dog/hog, mouse/house, snake/lake, rat/hat, goat/boat, fish/dish).

Have you ever view a (bear) over a (chair)?
Have you ever view a (bear) on a (chair)?
No, Irrrve never, no, I never, no, Irrrve never, no, I never,
No, I never saw a (bear) over a (chair).

So let's start bringing those nursery rhymes back. Sing these songs and rhymes while bathing your son or daughter, diving in the auto, cuddling for the couch. Grandmas and Grandpas, make nursery rhymes an enjoyable section of the time the kiddos commit to you. More classic nursery rhymes are available using a simple web search and on YouTube.
