The team at the Rollins Center for Language
& Literacy has recently launched RHYME
with Me, the newest addition to the infant/toddler track on Read Right
from the Start on the Cox Campus. Joining other courses in a
series emphasizing the critical role of a responsive adult in the development
of the young brain, RHYME with Me extends the concept of relationship building
between teachers and infants and toddlers to the realm of Rhythm and Rhyme.
brains benefit greatly from repetition, rhythm, and rhyme to process language,
enhance vocabulary, develop phonological awareness, and build early literacy
skills. RHYME with Me endeavors to deepen teachers’ understanding of the many
benefits of Rhythm and Rhyme and enables teachers to turn every rhythm and
rhyme moment into an opportunity to engage infants and toddlers in responsive
interactions, as they build their knowledge about the world and showcase the
sounds of language.
Read Right from the Start on the
is our free and universally accessible online learning platform backed up with
real-world classroom videos, online coaching, message boards and other
interactive features, which we are committed to improving continuously.
