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.
