Early Literacy Tip

Hush Little BabyHush, 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?
