Have you ever been told that learning something new becomes easier when set to music or rhyme? This can sometimes be true! English language learners can benefit from poetry in the classroom because of the rhythmic flow of words as well as the versatility and shorter length that they offer. Recalling passages of information that are longer than several lines may prove challenging for beginning English language learners. Short poems are less intimidating and bring a sense of play to learning language.
There are many poems by Shel Silverstein that can work for English language learners, and many are short and accessible. English language learners can repeat these poems as practice for learning new vocabulary and letter sounds. Poems and stories that are longer in length can be trimmed by passage for introduction purposes and more passages can be added as needed. These provide some options for English language learners to practice newly acquired language.
