Poetry Speaks to Children

Day 258

April is National Poetry Month.  This produces several reactions, depending upon which grade the students are in.

5th graders (mental reaction):  Groan . . . she’s going to make us write poetry. [Not true; I made them illustrate poetry.]

Kindergartener (after I asked what poetry is):  “I think it is a tree.”
