Have you wondered what to use for Poetry Study or how to teach it?
Poetry
I love Poetry! I remember giggling at Shel Silverstein books and enjoying Robert Louis Stevenson, Christina Rosetti and Emily Dickinson when I was younger. I love being able to introduce poetry to my children in a natural, easy going way and it is easy to do when you make daily time for it. You can even create your own poetry unit studies teaching about the different types of poems and finding poems of that type and writing your own!
