Teaching has rhyme and rhythm

on 22/01/2016

Why I love poetry? Ever read The Gruffalo? Vocabulary, rhythm, intonation, TPR, and a positive message! Tons of things to think and wonder about. Teaching with stories/poetry rocks!


Just finished my Gruffalo week, working with a clever group of amazing preschool kids and then a wonderful team of dedicated teachers.

Teaching Narnia, Taya Bayliss and Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, depending on age groups. Awesome!

Day job at its best!

PS: Plus, all my students passed their B2 and C1 Cambridge exams. Woohoo

  1. Rhymes are a great way to reach students, young and old. Although the older kiddos might be a little more resistant to the idea. Especially great for auditory learners!
