This collection of poems and songs is available in two formats:

  1. Enlarged print for emergent readers
  2. Smaller print for primary readers

Language is the foundation for all thinking, learning, communication, and literacy. Accelerating language and reading skills simultaneously while joyfully singing and dramatizing songs and chanting rhymes is a multisensory learning strategy that takes advantage of how the brain learns best! It builds community and is memorable, engaging, and incorporates a host of “best practices.”

Your (growing) “I Can Read” Poetry and Song Bundle will soon have over 200 traditional and copyright-secured poems, songs, and rhymes that are worthy of children’s time and creative energy. (All children's art and photos are posted with parental permission and copyrighted to NellieEdge.com.) We encourage you to bring back the out loud culture: Choose the rhymes from our monthly collections that you delight in and that fit your curriculum themes!

  • Enjoy reciting, singing, dramatizing, and signing the language with your students.
  • Invite students to personalize the language with art.
  • Provide shared reading experiences where all children feel successful.
  • Send the notebooks home regularly for oral language rehearsal and reading fluency practice.
  • You may be inspired to make these best practices routine in your classroom!

You will find a photo essay In September Poetry documenting some of the amazing work from kindergarten teachers who value authentic language learning rich in arts and deep science connections.
