    Why teach nursery rhymes, poems and jazz chants? 
    • Research shows that early learning of nursery rhymes and rhythmic poems, songs, and chants significantly enhances early reading skills and phonemic awareness.  Phonemic awareness  is a strong predictor of a child's reading success.
    • Phonemic awareness can be developed in children by providing them with fun, rich language experiences that encourage active exploration and manipulation of sounds through rhymes, poems and jazz chants.  These activities lead to significant gains in subsequent reading and spelling.
