Poetry Writing for Young Children07:00
It's World Poetry Day, so when Viking approached us to take part with their project of course we were very excited! I absolutely love poetry and have always enjoyed teaching it to children as well. I will never forget, my first teaching placement as a student teacher when I had to introduce the poetry unit and everyone told me that it was the most difficult thing to teach because the kids hated it! But I came in that day and told the kids that I couldn't wait to teach them about one of my favourite things, and by getting them excited about it they were then keen to learn, and came up with some incredible poems!
So today it was time to introduce poetry to Ethan and Ivy, even at just 3 and 5 it's never too young to learn. Viking sent us a fun box of poetry writing supplies, including:
- calligraphy pen set
- chisel pen Sharpie
- fine point Sharpie
- mini canvas
- parchment paper
- coloured paper
- metallic silver paint pen
- metallic gold paint pen
