It's Rhyme Time in Junior Kindergarten

It has been identified that a critical subskill of phonological awareness and a foundational reading skill is rhyming. On behalf of all Wauwatosa junior kindergarteners, Linda Forbord and Angie Kolanko have been awarded a $2,294.00 EFW grant to purchase materials that will support the teaching and learning of rhyming consistently across the district.

Rhyming books, games, interactive nursery rhyme kits, and computer software will be used by teachers to model the skill of rhyming and be used by students in literacy centers to independently practice rhyming skills on a daily basis. This project improves the likelihood that students can achieve the objectives leading to proficiency through repeated practice and application of taught skills.
