Poetry Reading

Ken read her poetry book in front of some preschoolers yesterday. She did a fantastic job in keeping their interest with her own poetry writings. Kens' articulation has improved drastically. She read with great expression and fluency. Ken also created a real wholesome atomosphere, she made the children some cookies to snack on while she read to them (smart move). The younger ones enjoyed her performance and requested more, more ( not just for the cookies:)

  Preparing for her Meet The Poet debut, making the cookies.

                  Greeting her participants.

                 Reading selections from her poetry book.

                             The pleased and wonderful audience.

                                                         The Proud Poet

Kens' poetry study was roughly about six weeks. Below are the books she used as her text for learning about poetry. My America A Poetry Atlas of the United States selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins, R is for Rhyme A Poetry Alphabet written by Judy Young, and Love That Dog a novel by Sharon Creech. All of books were very good reads, Ken says her favorite one was Love That Dog.




  1. That's wonderful! Great experience for kids :)

  2. She looks so proud! What a wonderful way to wrap up a unit of study, too!

  3. I love how you had a poetry reading at the end! You emcompassed all aspects of literary production.

    This is one of my favorite poetry books, it works to even interest kids who don't like poetry. (Or teachers, like me.)

  4. Thank you for the compliments ladies, I will be sure to share your kind words with Ken.
    Mommamindy- Thank you for sharing another book for us to enjoy!
