Do you remember the silly jokes you heard as children, the ones your friends told over and over? That is because humour and memory are closely connected. Poetry awakens our senses and brings the element of surprise into our lives; it makes us laugh, trains our memory and develops us as creative individuals. Children who experience poetry before entering school and throughout their development acquire a taste for playing with language. They become natural poets, and rhyme and rhythm will surround them as they chant jump-rope rhymes on the playground, clap to their favourite songs and dance in response to music. Memorising and reciting these poems with your children will help them develop the mental powers of visualisation, association and recall.
