Create a Nature Poetry Book
Inspire a love for the written word by creating an illustrated nature poetry book with your kids. Poetry excites the imagination, taking us on journeys to other times and places. Let your child's imagination take her away by encouraging her to write poetry inspired by nature in her own backyard.
Writing poems is a great way to learn about the art of poetry and practice handwriting skills. Use this time to talk to her about rhyme, verse, and the conventions of the English language as she writes for a valuable language arts lesson.
