    Read them loads and loads of rhymes. Rhyme when you're talking with them. Leave off a rhymes from familiar texts and let the children offer them. Offer amusing alternatives.

    Then ask yourself why such little children need to have an "awareness of rhyme" other than that slowly taken on board over a childhood where such things are just taken on board incidentally.

    Have a look at: Two Fat Cows or The Grumpy Crocodile. Excellent rhyming stories

    I find this a difficult one, too. We have fun with the song "Willoughy Wallaby Woo" (by Raffi); after they've got the hang of it, I leave off the last word and see who can guess which child the elephant sat on this time. It's great for sending them off the carpet one by one.
