25th January 2012: 'I Can' poem on youtube with words and backing beat.

posted 3 Mar 2014, 14:18 by Helên Thomas

I've just made a little video to go with the poem 'I Can' which is on the 'Everybody Everywhere Stomp Your Feet!' album. This is a poem that I perform for KS1 and foundation stage children (that's roughly children between the ages of 3 - 7).

I get all of the children to stand up and join in with actions, which they usually enjoy. I've put all of the words into the video, mainly for the benefit of my nephew who is learning to read, but hopefully other people will find it useful as well. 

The track is available to buy as a download or on CD from

I also added the backing beat, without my words, to the album so that children can perform the poem at their own pace to the beat, or they can even write their own versions of the poem for performance.
