PostSubject: The Power of Poetry in Primary Classrooms   2nd December 2015, 11:47 pm

Here are my top five:

Poetry broadens reading choices, as there are numerous excellent poetic picture books and poetry collections.
This distilled form of writing naturally focuses on sentence-level skills with its purposeful selection of adjectives, adverbs, powerful verbs, specific nouns, etc.
This makes poetry a perfect writing form to study immediately after holiday breaks when students typically show regression in the quality of written and spoken communication.
Being such a small amount of writing, poetry is less intimidating for writers new to English. Along with storytelling, it has given my English as an additional language (EAL) students their first opportunity to write English and orally share their writing.
Poetry can be written about any subject, imaginary or factual; about personal experiences or concepts; about emotions or facts.
