Read, Recite, and Write Nursery Rhymes (Poet's Workshop)
In this entertaining title, readers will learn about Mother Goose, rhyme schemes, and metered verse. They will look for the logic in nonsense words and be guided through the process of writing their own nursery rhymes.
Simultaneously as concise and in-depth as poems themselves, this Read, Recite and Write series deftly instructs young writers in brainstorming, writing, revising and even orally presenting their own original poems. Writing poetry is an effective way to start children in composing since small amounts of writing can be earnestly focused on. Each photograph-and-cartoon-illustrated book provides examples of a particular poetry style. By following each of the 8 chapters of step-by-step guidance, students learn to understand the poetry type, work through the writing process, and discover how to present their own poem. Poetry Pointers and Literature Links emphasize key terms in bold. These bite-sized texts cut out the unnecessary and direct even unwilling writers. Included are additional links as well as a book list, glossary, and index. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
