ABSTRACT
The article presents information on ways by which children can learn from poems and rhymes. Rhyming word patterns help one child's reading skills. Nursery rhymes are especially powerful, because they are so memorable. Research has found that children who are familiar with nursery rhymes when they enter kindergarten often have an easier time learning to read. This is probably because rhyming helps children discover many common word patterns such as those in quick/stick or down/crown. And the more familiar these patterns become in oral language, the more easily children will recognize them when they begin to encounter them in print.
