'A Few Good Habits' An interesting poem for kids


This is a poem teaching kids numerous good habits that they will inculcate in them easily after reading this small poem. I think it is always easy to teach something with poems or music as they have a strong flair for music.

Very often we face problems in teaching our kids a few good habits, a few good manners and a few good things as they raise 'serious' questions about the significance of these good things. Children take up these habits more quickly if they are told that these habits can make them the best in their category. Moreover, they pick up things easily when they are preached in a musical or poetical way. Here is a small attempt to motivate them to these habits:

A few good habits

A few good habits
Forget none,
Surely will they
Please everyone.

Get up early
And brush your teeth;
Seek bath shower
Sit underneath.

Look at your hands
And at your feet;
Cut your nails well
To keep them neat.

Wear your uniform
Have breakfast;
Go to school first
Don't be the last.

Be happy at school
Learn and play;
Complete your home-work
Everyday.

Obey your Ma'am
Don't tell a lie;
Stand up to answer
Never be shy.

If you follow these
As a rule;
You'll be the best girl
Of the school.

Wow! Pradeep Rajput it is a nice poem about children good habit when I read this poem, my eight years old daughter said that," Mama I will follow all golden rules of good habits that are mentioned in this poem. I think generally kids are following all rules but some time they tried to avoid some. In that case this poem become helpful, I learn this poem too. Many times I sung it with my daughter and son.

Thanks Seema Mittal for appreciating my tiny effort to teach the simple rules which kids already know or follow in general but they sometimes get lazy about them or ask about their significance out of this laziness. I have a six years old daughter for whom I wrote this poem and then I got the idea of sharing with the rest of the world. I think kids are more impressed with the instructions given in a poetic way. Thank you once again!

Thanks Pratushaji! I think kids can better be taught in a funful way rather than by simple instructing them and a little poem can teach them more influentially than a prosaic lesson.
Thanks for the compliment!

This is a very unmeaningful poem in my opinion.
