As teachers, we know how the ability to hear rhyme or alliteration is an essential component in the progression of phonemic awareness development. The use of nursery rhymes in the classroom can assist in the development of phonemic awareness, as well as help develop an understanding of vocabulary, syntax, and story structure. These rhymes usually tell a story with a beginning, middle and end, which teaches that events happen in sequence. Plus, they are easy to recall and memorize!
