Synopsis

Poetry, the Magic Language Children Learn to Read and Write it by Maureen W. Armour

Presenting poetry as a source of pleasure and wisdom that cannot be found in prose, this book embraces student-centered, integrated teaching and learning. It brings together classroom anecdotes; poetry written by and for children; information about poetic forms and applications; instructions for revising, evaluating, printing, and celebrating poetry; and guidelines for a variety of fresh ways to use poetry in the classroom. Intended primarily for elementary school educators, this volume will also be useful to language arts specialists, ESL teachers, those working with lower-achieving students, administrators, parents-anyone interested in fostering children's reading and writing abilities. Grades K-6.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!
