And once you have become a writer, you might become a reader...A Creative Approach to Teaching Rhythm and Rhyme is a 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 is a book about celebrating the music of ordinary speech. It features practical warm-up sessions, games, models and examples to help pupils to become readers, writers and confident speakers through the lively practice of rhythm and rhyme.
