Rhymes Advice

Just wanted others' opinions on something that's been at the back of my mind for a while:

with developing children's awareness of rhyme in mind, is it better for them to hear rhymes as spoken/does putting it to a tune help or hinder? My context is preschool by the way.

Well I think that was my view too, but I was also wondering whether the tune might actually interfere with them hearing the rhyme in some cases. A case in point: the room leader introduces a new rhyme, the next day a colleague says she knows a tune to it & from then on they sing it because room leader isn't sure whether or not it matters. I'm probably going in to it too deeply - I have a tendency to do that - but my gut feeling is that there ought to be some kind of distinction.

Yes, put like that it's very simple, Susan! Definitely the rhyme so I will curb one team member's enthusiasm for singing in every context! Thanks, that has clarified my 'gut feeling'!
