Stringing rhyming words together to compose a poem isn't child's play. But these little verse-makers seem to have a natural talent for it. Here are some poems on Maths, Science and all things wise!

Primary to Pre-teen
Young Poets' Thoughts On Different Subjects

Have you ever wondered how your children actually feel about the subjects they're studying? No doubt, there are some subjects which they love and others which they can't stand. Every child is different. Some children enjoy Mathematics while others may have a natural flair for English. Whatever the case, children today aren't afraid of expressing their opinions.

Poetry is one of the avenues that children may choose to express their feelings toward a subject. Not only is poetry a great form of creative expression, it also hones language skills and can calm the mind. Children get introduced to poetry at a very young age in the form of nursery rhymes. It doesn't take them too long to realise that they can devise such rhymes themselves. Before you know it, these little wordsmiths are writing poems about all and sundry. We bring to you a selection of poems written by some talented children. Read through their verses to find out why Math interests some yet dismays others.

Let's do some Maths

I say Maths is fun

As it makes me wise

I need to revise

Twice and Thrice

Counting Numbers is easy peasy

Addition Subtraction makes life easy

I say "Doing Maths makes me geeky"

Mom says "Ah...Dont be cheeky" - Ahaana Vinod, Class II, Vels Vidyashram, Chennai

Maths Trouble

Sums are not good

Maths sums are never good

Add or subtract

Either of it you do

The trouble is for you

Huge numbers are tough to add

And Subtract

Although Maths is hard

Always do it

And always do it from your heart - Nakshatra Harish, Class I, Delhi Public School, Vadodara

Infinite Maths

Maths uses numbers only from 0 to 9

But you can count infinite

Maths has only add, subtract multiply and divide

But you can do calculations infinite

Maths has only 4 basic shapes in 2D and 3D

But you can use them to build things infinite - Kavin S, Class IV, Kola Perumal Chetty Vaishnav Senior Secondary School, Chennai

The English Class At One

The class was buzzing

And the time was ticking

The clock hit one

The teacher came in

She began The Ivan's story

The story of a gorilla

The pages flipped

And we were towards the end

Poor Ivan left his soul

Thinking of his happy past

The bell rang loudly

We woke from the sorrow

And that was how the English class

Came to a close - Sanjeev S, Class V, Bala Vidya Mandir, Chennai

Student's Burdens

Adding to our ailment

Is Maths that multiplies our misfortune

Backing up our bane

Is History that hoists our hardship

Darkening our despair

Is Geography that grills our gusto

Capsizing our already piled up burden

Are two other foes namely Science and Language - Ronith Arun, Class V, Union Christian Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Chennai

Science Splendors

Science makes me wonder

Of stars, moons and places yonder

Air, water and weather

They are easy to read and discover

Why is the sea blue?

Why is apple not a fruit?

What medicine do I take for flu?

How do we pollute?

These and many more

We learn to the core

For then I can be A Curie- Ruhan Arun, Class V, Union Christian Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Chennai


My favourite subject is Tamil

B'cos it is

Two thousand years old

Our Tamil is gold

Has Spread tenfold

Wonders behold!

Learn Tamil, breathe Tamil and teach Tamil

All over the world

Nandri - Swetha Saravanan, Class II, Narayana Olympiad School, Chennai
