    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. "Words for the Wise" boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. "If You're a Poet, You Should Know It" boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that person's poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25" x 10.25". 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel

    Through a broad selection of ancient, classical, Biblical and modern poetry, this guide introduces this symbolic world as appealing, accessible and understandable to anyone. Each poetic device is taught by highlighting a unique poem and its poet. Activities like timelines, puzzles, games, and poetry journals reinforce learning. At each unit’s end, students review all previous concepts and then practice the devices learned. Unit 1 teaches structure and rhyme scheme (including various rhymed lines, shaped, villanelle, free verse, and sonnets). Unit 2 covers epic, ode, ballad, pastoral devotional, narrative, and 3 types of humorous poems. Unit 3 teaches anaphora, refrain, rhyme, consonance, alliteration, onomatopoeia, symbolism, personification, apostrophe, metaphor and simile. The free digital Companion Guide on the publisher’s web site includes reproducible Student Reviews, coloring pages, game templates and a lesson text work space (rather than writing in the text), and text answer key. 8 1/2”x 11 1/4”, 255 pgs, hc. ~ Ruth

    This book walks the student through 41 step-by-step lessons which first introduce them to a type of poetry, and then guide them through the writing process so they can create their own verses. Each lesson fits nicely on a two-page spread, where the specific poem type is explained through definition and example, and a reproducible student page on the right where they work through steps to write their own. For example, in the lesson on haiku, they learn about haiku poetry, read through the given suggestions and tips on how to write their own, think about possible topics, write several phrases or words related to the topic, and then work at arranging them to fit the 5-7-5 haiku pattern. The bottom of the page features blank lines for writing their finished poetry, with plenty of blank space for illustrations or borders. The format and content of these lessons make it easy for students to work on their own, and the lessons are designed to be completed fairly quickly. Some poetry types covered in the lessons are: couplets, onomatopoeia, cinquain, ballad, metaphor, diamonte, I wish poetry, ABC poetry, limericks, question, recipe, tongue twister, trouble, people, simile, and much more. Suggestions on how to collect and share poetry are included, as well as a bibliography and step-by-step bookbinding techniques - in case you really get into poetry-writing! - Jess

    The way you introduce poetry to young students can make a huge difference in the way they approach poetry for years to come. This workbook helps you introduce students to poetry as a fun, creative chance to write down their thoughts and feelings in silly or meaningful poems. The first few pages present the different kinds of poems covered, so the teacher can gain familiarity with the examples and the unique qualities of each poem. Then worksheets are given to introduce students to the different poems, including couplets, free verse, haikus, limericks, acrostics, sensory poems, personal poems, chants, and much more. The worksheets provide students with simple ways to get started writing poetry, from making word lists, to answering questions, to completing frameworks. Templates are given for each different kind of poetry covered, and students will enjoy completing them. Pages near the end hold lots of seasonal patterns and stationery for young students to work on. A very light, but complete introduction to creative poetry for young students. Reproducible, 96 pgs. - Melissa

    This book provides a creative combination of introductory poetry in the context of the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet is associated with a unique literary term, tool, or technique and is presented in a down to earth, easily understandable manner. Author Judy Young then demonstrates the use of the term or technique through a cleverly crafted original poem. For example, the letter "L" introduces a catchy limerick about "The Ballerina" while the letter "O" talks about onomatopoeia through a poem entitled "The Ears of an Elephant."

    Now this is something I would have liked to have had on hand when I was younger! Though simply titled as a journal, this substantial (at 173 pages) and attractive journal is so much more. The book is designed to be both a guide and a record for the young nature lover and student while observing animals and plants in their natural habitats. The journal is divided into five "worlds," woodlands, meadows, ponds & streams, seashore, and twilight. These are nicely laid out in a table of contents at the beginning, complete with a list of the activities in that section and a shaded circle for them to check off once they have completed that page. Following several pages of safety tips, hints on sketching in the field, and a list of suggested items to make a "journal kit" to keep with them while out in the field, we jump into the woodland unit. Every two-page spread in a section consists of a different activity to complete while observing in that area, a page or two of informational reading to prepare the student better to find objects or understand them, and blank pages for them to draw and record their findings. For example, in Woodlands, there are "scavenger hunts" where you record your findings in the blanks rather than gathering things. There is space to write descriptions of different kinds of leaves, pages to draw leaves they find or make leaf rubbings, a page for them to write about their special place, hints on how to find decomposers, and pages to draw animal tracks they find. Each section ends with several blank pages for observation notes, sketches, or whatever else they'd like to record. All in all, it's a combination of nature guide, sketchbook, and journal all in one very attractive (and perfectly hand-sized) package. All this wrapped up in a durable hardcover but spiral bound book teeming with illustrations, tempting areas to write, and inviting spots to draw. With these kinds of "prompts" on every page, combined with natural curiosity, learning about nature should be practically effortless!
