Poetry can be intimidating to teach to some of us. Use this ultimate guide to poetry for multiple ages (for the intimidated) to help you. When you think about it, it is easier to teach a subject with clear cut answers. Your kids study and drop the information. They either get it or they don’t, but poetry is different. It is hard to take an abstract to concrete, associating images with thoughts, limited experiences of our kids to appreciate figurative language. My imagination, for one, is limited as well. I like black and white, and for things to make sense.However, poetry takes you out of that mindset somewhat and stretches the thought process. Poetry is a subject that you won’t want to get lost in the midst of other subjects. Getting your kids to learn this art, expressing through language, and thinking outside the box is important for them to function as they get older.
