This the third class in my series of Poetry Writing for Beginners. Small class size and individual attention are key to building your child’s confidence in expressing his/her ideas. Writing poetry is fun when learners have the choice to write about their feelings, experiences or even something imaginary. To create the lines of this poem, learners will use describing words (adjectives) and actions (verbs)… no rhyming, counting syllables or complete sentences necessary! Although this is an...
• Students will learn how to brainstorm ideas. • Students will learn the format of a poem by numbers. • Students will practice the steps of writing this type of poem. • Students will begin to develop self-confidence in creative writing and public speaking. • Students will begin to develop an appreciation/interest in poems and poetry writing.
I have been an early childhood educator for more than 30 years. My teaching experiences and professional development training have helped me build a treasure chest of ideas, materials and methods to guide children through the writing process. My area of expertise is utilizing children’s literature and poetry as the cornerstone for teaching every subject. Kicking off a science unit on life cycles by reading Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great way to capture the student’s attention. Reading any of Jack Prelutsky’s poems will bring children to giggles… a wonderful introduction for a grammar lesson on parts of speech. Children will become confident in their writing abilities when they are given the time and guidance to listen to their own words. They will begin to understand that changing those words (revising) does not mean their work is wrong or not good enough. Providing individual attention to students during this process is key for that understanding to develop.
There is no homework assigned for this class. Children will be encouraged to continue writing poems when inspiration strikes them!
