{December 29, 2009}   Poetry and Kids

It has been highly proved that kids who are exposed to literature from a young age develop better literacy skills. I remember my kinder years, and I can easily portrait my teachers handing out pieces of paper for us to draw what we thought of poems they read aloud.

I am preparing a set of poems to work with my little students, and I’m thinking of providing them the written version of the poem for them to read and draw what they think and feel. Then, I will put all poems in student’s folders, for them to keep a record of their work. I will start from the easiest poems, where they will just have to draw, to more complex ones, where they will compose their own verses.

What do you think?
