A Creative Approach to Teaching Rhythm and Rhyme is a book about using words, sounds, echoes, patterns and rhythm in the primary classroom.
It is a book about hearing the poems found in football chants, nursery rhymes, radio jingles, TV adverts, raps and tabloid headlines.
Most importantly, it is a book about celebrating the music of everyday speech. This is a practical guide for primary teachers to develop pupils' speaking and listening skills - their use of anticipation and memory and their ability to enjoy language and participate in its common music.
It features practical warm-up sessions, games, models, templates and examples to help pupils to become readers, writers and confident speakers through the lively practice of rhythm and rhyme.
