Kids and poetry. Using poetry in the classroom may seem daunting at first, but below you’ll find steps and tips to help you get your learners appreciating and writing poems.

Kids and poetry

Introducing poetryIf you haven’t used any poems in the classroom before it would be a good idea initially to give your learners the chance to listen and react to some fun poems. Choose poems that you think they will enjoy and that are appropriate for their age and level. However, don’t be put off using a poem because there are some words your learners won’t understand; it’s more important at this stage that they get a feel for poetry and begin to enjoy the way it sounds. You can use pictures or mime to help get the meaning across, just as you do when you read them story books. If you don’t have access to children’s poetry books, try these sites: You can search by topic to find an excellent selection of poems. Remember, poems don’t need to rhyme and it may be easier for lower levels if they don’t try. - Interactive worksheets maker for all languages and subjects.

The Second Conditional

This is mostly done in formal writing). It has two uses. First, we can use it to talk about things in the future that are probably not going to be true. If I won the lottery, I would buy a big house. Second, we can use it to talk about something in the present which is impossible, because it's not true. If I had his number, I would call him. This kind of conditional sentence is different from the first conditional because this is a lot more unlikely. Mobile Learning Digital Storytelling Apps.
