TOOLBOX: Rhyme-A-Week


ABOUT A-Rhyme-A-Week 
The Rhyme-a-Week phonological
awareness program features 30 different nursery rhymes.
 

The phonograms or "rimes" emphasized in the program were
first identified by Richard Wylie & Donald Durrell in
1970. 


Examining a list of 1, 437 words commonly spoken
by children in primary grades
(Murphy, 1957), Wylie & Durrell
identified 37 rimes that accounted for nearly 500 words of Murphy's list.
 

In determining the order of rhymes and rimes to present weekly, 
they follow Fry's (1998) suggested consideration of frequency.
