Children's Poetry

Original children's poetry and artwork, and tips for writing poetry.

For the pre-emergent and emergent reader, through the use of some of my poetry ideas here, skill building such as letter/sound recognition, phonemic and oral elements, spelling, reading and writing are being practiced.

Parents and grandparents, what to do on a rainy day? Read the following poem from my book "Spinning Circles: Action Poems" out loud to your child and have them 'trot like a horse', 'trudge like an elephant', chirp, and skip!


















WHAT SHOULD WE DO TODAY?


Should we trot like horses?


CLOMP, CLOMP, CLOMP!


Should we trudge like elephants?


STOMP, STOMP, STOMP!


Should we chirp like birds do? 


TWEET, TWEET, TWEET!


Should we skip and jump on our own two feet?





"Grasshopper" is one of my poems published in Turtle Magazine






Okay - now it's time to guess which bug is the grasshopper
