Rhyme Time

This National Poetry Month, try playing rhyming games with your child. These games are fun for kids because you can get as silly as you like, but they’re also excellent language-builders. Start with simple sounds like "at," "in," or "up" and, together, brainstorm as many words as you can that contain those sounds. “Cat,” “hat,” and “splat” are good ones, but accept nonsense words that your child dreams up, like “zah-dat!”
