Writing Poetry With Young Children
Activity book with reproducible pages
By Shelley Tucker. Fun, kid-friendly activities teach students how to compose imaginative and meaningful poems. Each chapter addresses a different poetic element-simile, imagery, inquiry, metaphor, personification, alliteration, and onomatopoeia. Each of the dozens of lessons includes an art project (using easy-to-find materials) that extends and enhances poetic expression. Model student poems appear on reproducible pages that accompany each lesson. Grades K–2. Bibliography. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. 140 pages. ©1997.
