Poetry Power: Resources and Activities
Poetry Power: Word Play in Schools
Poetry is my favorite genre. I like reading it and writing it and find that, like me when I was young, children of all ages enjoy poetry, especially when it's presented with enthusiasm. For ideas to help introduce your students to poetry's music and fun, consult the various books on the topic. Enjoy Poetry Aloud Here! Sharing Poetry with Children in the Library by one of my favorite poetry champions for young people, Dr. Sylvia Vardell. Another good resource for including poetry in your planning is Give Them Poetry! A Guide for Sharing Poetry with Children K-8 by Glenna Sloan. You will find such books full of helpful ideas.
