Hi Dorothy ~ Thank you for reading. I too have English as Second Language students and I find that rhyme and repetition does indeed help them learn. I understand what you are saying but nonsense words do help with phonemic awareness and recognizing when it doesn't make sense. I appreciate you commenting and hope to hear from you again.
