“Children respond well to rhymes, narratives, and verse, which makes for enjoyable reading and movement experiences. Consider using simple movements while chanting rhymes. Begin with an anchoring movement pattern such as ‘Sway, sway.’ The swaying movement helps children feel the rhythm of the verse in their bodies and keeps the group focused on learning and performing the rhyme.”

If a child’s body movements accompany rhyming words, would those words be easy for the child to remember? Why?
