Poetry Break

Dear students, parents, and teachers,

I trust you all had a wonderful spring break. 

Let's take a respite from essay writing:

One great way to develop language usage is to study and write poetry. Many elements of poetry can be applied to writing fiction and nonfiction. Writing poetry also helps us develop an eye for revision. Plus it's a fun and wonderful way to express our feelings and our view of the world.

So how about following spring break with a bit of poetry?

Begin by learning a few things about poetry:

About Poetry (PDF — 176 KB)

Reading Poetry (PDF — 170 KB)

Then, check out and enjoy a few awesome poetry collections and anthologies from the library. 

Finally, chose a few poems that you particularly like, and identify the reasons you have for liking them (the rhythm? the rhyme? the words? the message?).

This month you'll study poetry. Next month you'll write it. Fun times!
