ARE YOU A POET?
Part of teaching reading is motivating the children to practice, practice, practice. I have found that using children's poetry is one way to do this.
Children's poetry encourages kids to read!
Poems help kids practice skills:
Stanza to search.
Nouns, verbs, and adjectives
Paraphrase a short poem
Rhythm of the poem
Builds confidence while having a great time learning!
