All About Poetry
What makes a poem, a poem? This is the question that will guide 10-12 year olds on this 7 week journey.
Poetry is the music of communciation. It touches the soul in a way prose cannot. It is rhythm, and pitch, and emotion in just a few carefully-chosen words. It broadens perspectives, and helps students develop their social-emotional skills. Poetry invites kids to broaden their vocabulary, and learn to appreciate the vast array of literary devices:
- figures of speech
- simile & metaphor
- alliteration & more.
After diving deep into the world of poetry, students will produce their own booklet of original poetry.
