Poetry

If you want kids in your classroom to enjoy writing like my kids did you need to purchase my book, Elementary Poetry.  It will contain an introduction to poetry, full Lesson Plans from Aug./Sept.~ June, Teacher's Workbook, Student Workbooks, Syllabus, Standards for many states, Power Point Presentation, and Pacing Guide. You will need to share this with your Principal because it is expensive and he/she can purchase it for you. You will find sample pages on: Teaching Point.

Keep an eye out for my new book ~ Poetry4Kids ~I am still working on it.

A beautiful poetry book including a CD with poems read by the poets.  A must for any classroom. ~ Poetry Speaks to Children
