Nursery Rhymes for Early Literacy

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

The phonograms or "rimes" emphasized in our program were
first identified by Richard Wylie and Donald Durrell in

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