World Poetry Day

Have you read a poem to your students today?
Why not share one of your own favorites with them and have them complete this Poem Review worksheet...?
Reading poetry helps to develop a multitude of skills in young children including  listening skills, auditory discrimination, auditory processing, understanding of  rhythm and rhyme, it increases vocabulary and introduces word play and poetry helps children with visualization skills.
Reading or listening to poetry can also be less demanding for children who are not naturally drawn to literature, especially if you choose a poem that is humorous, has plenty of rhythm and rhyme or relates to an interest of the child/ren.
Share a poem may be the start of a daily ritual!
