Product Description
Developed by Mark Weakland, this document is a collection of tips and ideas for incorporating poetry into the reading, writing, and listening aspects of your balanced literacy or communications block.

Specifically, this document discusses onomatopoeia, two-person poems, staging poems, writing poems with rhyme and rythmn, using lists, dialogue, and other writing conventions as a springboard for poetry, and much more.

While famous poems and well known poets are mentioned, this document outlines ideas that spring from the music and poetry of Mark Weakland, specifically his children music CDs "Little Animals" and "Mr. Sounds" and his recent collection of poetry, "The Delicious Chocolate Donut (and other off-kilter poems).
