One Hat, Two Hat, Red Hat, Fruit Hat!

Posted Mar 02 2012 11:16am

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!! Do your children like to read Dr. Seuss books?  Did you know that introducing rhymes to your children at a young age can actually be beneficial to their reading skills?  Here are a few facts I found:

  • Children who have trouble with rhyming words also have trouble learning to read. Introducing rhymes early gives your child practice with them.
  • Rhythms present in rhymes help children to remember the words, exercising their auditory memory skills
  • Rhymes sensitize a child to the individual units of sound that make up a word. These units are known as phonemes. Knowing what units of sound are in a word help children to know how to read and spell a word when the time comes.
  • Many story rhymes paint colorful images of characters and situations that expand a child’s imagination. Imagination is the basis of make believe play and storytelling, skills that become important as your child grows.

We decided to celebrate today by making a fun breakfast.

We just sliced an apple crosswise, and then stacked sliced strawberries and bananas on top.

(Don’t mind the bed head)  I think my girls didn’t expect to wake up to a breakfast creation……In the end they loved them.
