If “an apple a day will keep the doctor away”, then perhaps a-rhyme-a-week will keep school failure at bay. WIL’s A-Rhyme-a-Week phonological awareness program features 30 different nursery rhymes. The phonograms or “rimes” emphasized in our program were first identified by Richard Wylie and Donald Durrell in 1970.

Download the featured nursery rhyme card. We’ve laminated these as well to add to their durability. We’ve also been punched holes so the cards can be used to create rhyming books for the classroom library. Lesson Plans follow approximately the same format each week. On Mondays, we revisit favorite rhymes, then introduce this week’s new rhyme. Whenever we’ve been able to locate the tune, we teach children the rhyme through song.
We also chant the rhyme, and work on its rhythm. On Tuesdays, we emphasize acting out the rhyme, using our various Monday chants to provide the accompaniment for our “actors”. On Wednesdays, we introduce the rhyming picture set, explaining the new vocabulary that comes with the picture set. On Thursdays, we work with the picture sets and the Riddle Rhymes.
On Fridays, we review, using new Riddle Rhymes, acting out, singing, and chanting. 2 units will appear at the end of this coming school year. We have selected the ordering of the rhymes, in general, by the frequency with which the rime unit appears in reading materials for young children. You are welcome to change the order to meet your own program needs. When I’ve been asked why I decided to use the classic nursery rhymes as the basis for WIL’s phonological awareness program, the first answer that always comes to my mind is simply that the rhymes are fun.
