Introducing Poetry to Kids

Try sharing a poem one night a week at dinner.  We wrote our first poem on paper and hung it up to read every day.  Now my son has it memorized and loves sharing it with anyone that will listen!  

Bonus: By reading aloud poems at home you are building background knowledge for your kids.  When they learn poetry at school the literary terms will stick, and more importantly they will have a love of poetry!

Got any fun poems to share?
