Early Literacy Tip
Hush, little baby, don't say a word, papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
If that mockingbird don't sing,
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
This is a book that you can sing or read. Listen to the rhymes: which words rhyme?
- sing, ring
- brass, glass
- twirl, Pearl
- stuck, truck
Singing and rhyming help with phonological awareness, which is the ability to hear and play with the smaller sounds in words.
What else could Papa buy you? Can you make other rhymes?
- Hush, Little Baby by Brian Pinkney
- Old MacDonald Had a Farm by Jane Cabrera
- My Aunt Came Back by John Martin Feierabend
