A teacher shared a 10 y/o pupil’s ‘palindrome poem’ and it’s just remarkable
We’re grateful to a teacher called Jane Broadis who shared this amazing piece of work by one of her 10-year-old pupils.
Called ‘Dyslexia’ it can be read forwards and backwards – to be honest, it took us far too long to do it both ways – and it went viral because it’s frankly brilliant.
Today in Y6 we looked at poems that could be read forwards & backwards. I was stunned by this one written by one of my 10 year olds. Please share – I would love her work to be appreciated further afield. I wonder if it could even find a publisher? pic.twitter.com/tmEQpiRrhq

And it went viral because people loved it so much. Here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.

Us too, us too.
Absolutely beautiful ❤️ wish I’d seen something this inspirational when I was diagnosed dyslexic. You must be a truly great teacher – and obviously have an immensely talented student 😊 https://t.co/xlZFTvG1nx

That’s brilliant. You sound like a great teacher too. The encouragement and confidence you give her now, she will remember for the rest of her life.

This is how I felt at school before I got my diagnosis.
I never understood how other kids could do the alphabet or read for fun.

Wonderful! I was called stupid by my year 6 teacher. 3 years later diagnosed with Dyslexia.
We just see things others can not.

This is fantastic! She should be so proud. Imagine what she could produce over a longer time frame. Definitely needs to be in print 🌟

I was reading it backwards like “life in it make can I” and was like…. this doesn’t make any sense and then I realised. Why is this child more intelligent than me
