The phonograms or « rimes » emphasized in our program were first identified rimes PDF Richard Wylie and Donald Durrell in 1970.


Traduction inédite, notes et préface de Jacqueline Risset

Les Rimes sont la partie la plus méconnue de l’oeuvre de Dante. Fruits d’une expérimentation passionnée, elles occupent vingt-cinq ans de la vie du poète, de l’âge de 18 ans jusqu’à l’écriture de la Comédie. Par le langage, les thèmes, la pensée en mouvement, elles préparent le grand poème. Mais elles explorent aussi un espace qui lui est étranger, car elles transmettent une vision contrastée, contradictoire de l’amour et des pulsions humaines. Les Rimes ne sont pas seulement oeuvres de laboratoire mais poèmes qui atteignent souvent des réussites totales, d’une beauté étonnamment actuelle, intense, hardie. Elles ouvrent une vision surprenante de la vitalité médiévale, où se lit une douleur d’amour si cruelle qu’elle invoque la mort et aussi un bonheur d’amour «auprès de quoi ne semble rien le paradis». La présente traduction essaie de mettre en route une fidélité poétique.

We’ve also been punched holes so the cards can be used to create rhyming books for the classroom library. Lesson Plans follow approximately the same format each week. On Mondays, we revisit favorite rhymes, then introduce this week’s new rhyme. Whenever we’ve been able to locate the tune, we teach children the rhyme through song. We also chant the rhyme, and work on its rhythm. On Tuesdays, we emphasize acting out the rhyme, using our various Monday chants to provide the accompaniment for our « actors ». On Wednesdays, we introduce the rhyming picture set, explaining the new vocabulary that comes with the picture set.

On Thursdays, we work with the picture sets and the Riddle Rhymes. On Fridays, we review, using new Riddle Rhymes, acting out, singing, and chanting. 2 units will appear at the end of this coming school year. We have selected the ordering of the rhymes, in general, by the frequency with which the rime unit appears in reading materials for young children. You are welcome to change the order to meet your own program needs.

When I’ve been asked why I decided to use the classic nursery rhymes as the basis for WIL’s phonological awareness program, the first answer that always comes to my mind is simply that the rhymes are fun. Children for generations have enjoyed the silliness of the characters’ antics. But there’s much more to these rhymes than simply their good humor and their aboundingly enthusiastic rhythm. The rhymes are the canon of our youngest set. Nursery rhymes introduce young listeners to story structure in its most basic form. There’s an orientation — Peter Pumpkin eater has a wife.
