Fun poetry for future teachers

Filed under: Uncategorized — beachbum87 @ 8:52 pm

This website has some cute stuff for future elementary/writing arts teachers. Especially the Giggle Poetry Page…It has lots of poems that are fun for kids. Teaching poetry and allowing children to recite and write it is a good way to help them with reading comprehension and fluency.

If you click on a poem it also gives an activity you can do with the class. If anyone has had a Teaching Literacy class, this website would be especially helpful. It gives many good ideas for choral reading and reader’s theater ideas.
