This rhyme, I’ll do with the flannel board. First I’ll say the rhyme, and put up the figures. Then we’ll all say the rhyme together.
Baby’s ready for a bath.
Here’s the baby’s tub.
Here’s the baby’s washcloth.
Rub a dub a dub.
Here’s the baby’s cake of soap,
And here’s the towel to dry,
And here’s the baby’s cradle,
Early Literacy Aside–Example: As we say rhymes with our young children they hear both the rhythm of language and the rhymes. Being exposed to rhymes helps them hear the smaller sounds in words, a first step in later learning to read.
