You are the kids best companion

Dear teacher,

Young learners eagerly tend to thrive

Into a foreign language they need to dive

They are naturally zealous, curious, energetic, and alive

And sometimes are hyper and loud as if in a beehive

You should scaffold them all along the drive,

Provide them with adequate tools to survive

And consider the appropriate ways you should contrive

Dear teacher,

Young learners are fragile and vulnerable

With affection and care you should handle

With them into language learning you will travel

To stroll around their world that is not ample

But cozy, overwhelming and still humble

Use your magic to make them twinkle

And make their learning setting real and meaningful

Dear teacher,

Young learners are individuals with different smarts

Some use their brains, others use their hearts

Some prefer auditory styles, others fancy kinesthetic arts

Consider these differences when designing lesson parts

And make your objectives clear as if playing darts

Engage them in activities and assign purposeful projects

Make of their performance a shiny surface that reflects

Your successful mission to embrace those sweet hearts

The big thaw


Melting Moments

Smouldering embers in the dark
Come alive with one small spark
A tiny flicker in the heart
Is all it takes to make it start
And in a life where hopes remain
Blazing passion stirs again
Dormant feelings soon awake
Warmth will cause the ice to break
A frozen heart will beat once more
When love begins to make it thaw
So hold me close and hold me tight
Let’s set our world ablaze tonight
