I never got into poetry probably because it never made sense to me. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t cover it in our homeschool. It’s good to at least touch on a subject, exposing our children to subjects and ideas outside our own scope of interests.
If a love of poetry doesn’t come natural to you, you’re going to love this how-to. It will take the guess work out of presenting the information and help you get started. There’s also a free, printable Poetry Close Read Form that will walk you through examining a poem.
