Also: <br/> <br/>If you come to my website I have made freely available to teachers many of my own nonsense poems that you might like to try . I am a children's poet (just published) and I put material here for teachers to try with their children. Writers do need feedback. Let me know if you like these poems. They are written with rhyme and rhythm and stories to help children both enjoy them and to promote phonemic awareness (literacy). Hope this helps. I've had Ning Nang Nong on and it is excellent. I have Spike Milligan's poem &quot;Granny&quot; there, but also my own nonsense poems.
