Early Years Rhyming Activities


Early Years Rhyming booklet containing activities to help with early literacy.  (See below for full description.)


Taken from EYFS Statutory Framework 2017.

Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

This Early Years Nursery Rhyme and well-known rhyme booklet contains 10 activities.  They have missing words to encourage children to listen to, and become familiar with rhymes and half-rhymes. They can be used to stimulate discussion and enrich vocabulary.
