quote:
"Rhyme is the first step in actually segmenting out an individual phoneme-level sound," Cherkes-Julkowski told LiveScience. "When you say cat/fat, what you've done is you've pulled the C away from the A, you've pulled the F away from the A. That's a big accomplishment."

In other words, rhymes are the framework that helps kids understand the pieces of a word. The part of the word that's key is the "rime," the syllable that starts at the vowel and goes through the end of the word.


Fascinating article about the importance of rhyme to children when first learning to read.

Interesting and it makes sense. I think it was Brad that once posted a similar thread about how the brain will fill in missing words to make sense of a sentence without the reader consciously noticing the error. That could be construed as an extension of the 'rime' reading the article talks about, suggesting that not only are words not read left to right but sentences aren't either.

The other thing that struck me was the possibility that adult poets somehow managed to hold onto the inner child - maybe we're all Peter Pan at heart.

Very interesting, and I bet there is not one big kid in this group here that doesn't remember "The Cat In The Hat,"or "Green Eggs and Ham?"  I remember teaching the girls to take a word, like book, and put each letter of the alphabet in place of the b in book to find a word that would rhyme, and use it to make lines that would rhyme.  I still hear them today doing that, and it all started with "Sam I Am."

Thank you, Ron.

I've been describing my poetry style as Dr. Seussian for years now.

I'm now validated, but not sure how complimentary that might be--does this mean I write "baby brain' poems? *giggles, gaga, and gleeeee*

Interesting article.  It is one of the many virtues for which we should encourage poetry to be part of our lives from an early age.
