Children love to learn to recite poetry from MEMORY. It is a pleasurable experience. They gain self-satisfaction which increases their confidence and self-esteem. It keeps their BRAINS active in a creative way. It is a FUN thing to do!
Interpreting and 'experiencing' these poems also encourages children to WRITE THEIR OWN POETRY.
Understanding the different types of poetry are something really fun and education for both parents as well as children.
