Product Description

The preview is a sample of some of the activities that you will find in this amazing product.

Teaching all the components of the English language can be a daunting task for a teacher. Achieving mastery skills in a new language can often be boring and frustrating for an English language learner student. Content related poems coupled with innovative techniques and strategies create a very successful resource for achieving mastery in all areas of language development. The activities included with this poem will help you build vocabulary and basic literacy skills in an enjoyable way.

Poems are an extremely engaging approach to teaching language skills. The rhyme and cadence of poems naturally lend themselves to being valuable mediums for the ELL student to interact with using both receptive and expressive language skills.

Poems that rhyme are easy to memorize. After a few recitations, the students not only remember the rhyme but the vocabulary and concepts. The students internalize the factual information that is expressed in the poem.

The best way to learn English is to have fun doing it. Linguist Stephen Krashen expressed the importance of teaching comprehensible input in a low anxiety setting. Poetry embedded in English lessons will allow teachers to employ this strategy successfully.
