More Poetry - About Children With Dyslexia - In A Poem

Updated on June 23, 2012

Dyslexia

Source

She Wishes She Could Read


©2012 LaDena Campbell aka justateacher

This poem is written for day five in the National Poetry challenge for 2012.

Dyslexia is a learning disability in the area of reading. Children who are dyslexic sometimes say that the words spin or bounce or jump off the page. Through learning strategies and lots of practice, children who are dyslexic can become good readers.

When she reads

The words get twisted

She tries to spell the word

Only to find she missed it

She struggles with her studies

Always feels a little sad

When the words spin on the paper

It makes her a little sad

She wants to be a reader

In just the worst way

She evens studies after school

When all her friends go out to play

Just once she wants an “A”

On her report card

She wants to prove to the world

That she really studies hard

But once again at the end of the quarter

She sees the great big “C”

She watched the kids at the Honor Roll Party

Quietly says “I wish it were me…”

      THis is such a sweet poem in support of dyslexia. I have two nieces with this disability, and they have gone through much in learning how to overcome the barriers. Thankfully, they did and are able to function well in society.

      Frog - LOL...but dyslexia is more than just seeing things backwards. It is more about how the brain perceives the written word....but that was still funny!

      teacher - Wonderful work. I often wonder what it would be like to see things backwards. Maybe like a liberal thinks but I'm not sure.

      I share a list of famous people with all sorts of learning disabilities with my students every year. It makes them feel so much better about themselves. Thank you for your comments!
