“We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.”
-John Keating, Dead Poets Society.
Poetry is a great way to build a child’s literacy skills! Poetry forces students to think beyond basic reading skills and regurgitating handwriting worksheets. But instead, think of words in a 3rd dimension, considering sound, rhyme, and fit. A good poem can awaken a child’s inner creativity and make your students look at words with awe.
Teaching Poetry in classrooms can be difficult for teachers. Which poem structure will students respond to? How should I best explain the rules? Where can I let my students practice their poems?
