Rhymes for kids help children notice that words are clumps of sounds with a similar pattern. When they begin spelling and reading words later, they’ll notice that rhyming words often end with the same letters. For instance, cat, bat, sat and hat all end with the letters –AT.
When you think of classic rhymes for kids, This Little Piggy ranks right up at the top. Kids of all ages love the easy lyrics and ticklish toe wiggling. This set of free printable finger puppets is a fun way to bring the rhyme to life.
