Early childhood professionals often use rhymes and poems in everyday interactions with their students. For example, quick little rhymes for cleanup times are classic elements in early childhood programs. Likewise, teaching children rhyming words becomes a basic practice that will eventually lead to literacy skills when teaching phonemic awareness and pre-writing skills.
Poetry comes in many forms, while often rhyming and rhythmic, this is not always the case. Poetry tends to focus on emotion, imagery, and aims to get a point across to the intended audience. At times it is fun and silly, and other times it is deep and thought provoking. Both carry equal weight in the early childhood classroom and both can be used in many different ways.
