A word about rhyming: children develop the idea of ‘rhyme’ at different rates. Often it just ’clicks’. Parents/teachers need to give support at the beginning of this game to develop the idea and give examples of rhyming. Books with rhyming are a fun way to develop these skills and can be started as young as 3 years
