Reading and writing poetry with children is always a win-win!
NOTE TO PARENTS & EDUCATORS
While teaching students (grades 4-8), I discovered that reading poetry regularly and writing poems together to share in class and display in common areas is an exciting way to get children of all ages hooked on reading and writing, all while building their self-esteem. “Let’s Haiku!” is a great way to get started. Poetry builds memory, concentration, critical thinking and creativity in people of all ages. I highly recommend reading and writing poetry as an essential building block in helping promote literacy at all levels.

The skills children continue to develop translate into enhanced accomplishment in academic studies at all levels. Reading with the kids is Fun-damental. Listening to them read regularly is a sure way not only to strengthen interpersonal skills and build relationships, it’s a great way for adults to be part of building a better future!
Happy reading, writing, talking and
listening to the kids every day!
