Using “Before and After” Charts in Reading a Nursery Rhyme To Build Comprehension Skills of Early Year Students LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

The nursery rhyme is a very popular rhythmic reading genre which can be used in introducing reading to children. The question is how to use the nursery rhyme to be more than just clapping hands to identify the rhyming words and to put more meaning into it. How do early year teachers use nursery rhymes to help children practice their reading comprehension skills?

There are two major issues in teaching reading for the early years. The first is to build their skills to recognize the letters and to sound them, then understand the system. The second is to encourage them to understand the message of the reading text. The first issue usually will accomplish as the children get enough “drilling” but the second issue maintains forever unsolvable. It is often found that a child is really good in reading, pronouncing words by words but then difficult to understand and comprehend the story.

To build the children understand and comprehension in reading, an effective comprehension strategies teaching should be utilized. Using the “before and after” chart after reading a nursery rhyme is one of the ways to help the students to understand the story. In the activity, students will learn to predict, visualize, and monitor the understanding in reading a text.
