7 cheerful short poems about animals to educate children on values


The short animal poems They are always very attractive for children, so they can be a good excuse to bring them closer to the wonderful poetic universe. However, these children's poems that we have compiled below, in addition to being starred by elephants, rabbits and crabs, serve to educate children in values. Enjoy them!

We begin this small compilation of poems with some beautiful verses that teach an important lesson to children: do not judge by appearances. Everyone believes that the elephant is arrogant because it tends to be very elegant. However, when it comes to helping your neighbors, he is the first who is willing to reach out.

As a complementary activity to this poem, we suggest the drawing. Encourage the children to illustrate this poem to see how they imagined this graceful elephant.

Came to live in the jungle

an elegant elephant

reputed to be distant

It was a zebra soon after

to the jungle to the same neighborhood

and began to know

to your entire neighborhood.

Lived a cute monkey

in a tree very close,

a very cool giraffe

and a dwarf orangutan.

a lion and a snake

and the distant elephant

almost next to the zebra.

The zebra woke up one day

with fever and irritating cough

and the first to help her

it was the arrogant elephant.

They became good friends

the elephant and the zebra

and have neighbors

every day they celebrate it.

The protagonist of this poem is a crab that has been trapped between some rocks. As much as he shouts and shouts, no one listens to him, except the albatross, who comes to his aid. It is curious because one of the main foods of this bird is crustaceans, so it could have eaten it. Hence, with this poem we can talk to children about the value of solidarity and helping others.

This poem, in addition to teaching us what solidarity means, can help us children to talk about the different types of animals according to what they eat: omnivores, herbivores, carnivores ... And, furthermore, we can give you concrete examples of what each creature eats (the cow eats grass, the eagle eats mice, the shark eats fish ...).

Between the rocks of the sea

by a clamp caught

she begged screaming.

I can't get out of here!

Please! I was just saying

but nobody was listening

and more and more it sank.

Help! Help! He cried,

scared the crab

and from the sky an albatross

heard the screams from afar.

The albatross looked for him

took off the stone

and the little crab ran

to hide in some ivy.

In races, the one who reaches the finish line first always wins. But what if we turned it around and the winner was the last one? This is what this poem shows, starring a rabbit and a hare.

Turning around activities that are very established for children, for example, when we talk about Little Red Riding Hood ate the Wolf (and not the other way around), we teach children that everything has two faces. We help them understand that there is always another way of doing things. It is a very interesting exercise in empathy and imagination.

After reading this poem, you can organize your own races in which the slowest child is the winner. How long will these races last?

even a fig tree,

the second that arrived

would win the race.

The hare was very slow

and the rabbit very slowly,

they looked at each other sideways

measuring the space well

The hare stopped

arriving at noon

and also stopped the rabbit.

And like that the days went by.

If the rabbit rested

so did the hare

and so the months passed

The rabbit two steps

and the hare one plus one,

and so the years passed

without winning any.

What does it mean to be proud? What is pride? These words can be a bit difficult for a child to understand, so turning to poems or stories can be very helpful. The short poem that we propose below talks about it. A proud kitten that he prefers to lie to admit that he has fallen because he has stumbled.

As a complementary exercise, we can ask the children to reflect on some negative situations that have become worse because of pride. For example, when out of pride we do not ask forgiveness for things we have done wrong. What else can you think of?

Playing up the ladder

without paying much attention

on the tenth rung

He fell on his back rolling

to the last step,

pride hurt more

than the blow that hit.

But where were you looking?

- his father asked him -

and the kitten replied:

Be happy! Convey happiness to the people around you! Spread a smile! Children have the extraordinary facility to fill us with the purest and most innocent joy. And this is precisely what this poem, starring a dancing cockroach, conveys. Do not miss it!

The best thing you can do after reading this story is remove the furniture from the classroom or your house, put on music ... and dance! Propose different musical genres to children so that they know the different types of music: jazz, rock n roll, classical, heavy ...

in the port by the sea,

I think the saxophonist

has come to listen.

Like everyone every night

in first position,

listen to the melodies

with a lot of attention.

believing that they do not look at her,

and the cockroach dances

then falls asleep

The following poem that we propose is very short; It only has 8 verses, in 2 stanzas, so we can suggest that the children learn it by heart. In addition, it is a short poem that invites the little ones to take pity and put themselves in the shoes of the poor crab, who would feel great pain when he lost his leg.

A crab leg

on the beach I found

Oh, poor animal!

Why is he one-armed?

Was it a hurricane?

By an amputated branch?

Oh, poor animal!

Why is he one-armed?

Routines are very important for children, as they provide them with great security. However, we must also teach the little ones to accept that sometimes things change and that you have to adapt to new situations. Without a doubt, flexibility is a skill that we must work, even many adults.

In addition to talking about this topic, this poem is about the opportunities that come our way and that we should not miss. Do not miss it!

Walking in the woods

and heard a snail speak

what he was saying to his brother.

I want to move house

I want to leave here

and coming out of its shell

left it lying there.

and squadron inside,

if I did any reform

it would leave her better.

Fixed some glitches

and covered a chip,

and in a matter of a few hours

his new house opened.
