Poetry can be FUN when you teach kids to listen for words and sounds that make children's poetry special! #nationalpoetrymonth

Great book to read aloud to class when studying figurative language--puns, palindromes, anagrams...about a boy that is punished and can only speak in puns. The cure can only be found when he is sent out in search of other types of words.

Inside My Head

Love this as a beginning of the year activity for a writing journal. Even though it isn't actually writing, it teaches the process of "brain"storming. @Amy Stults

Poetry - This is a great book for teaching manners in a fun way. It has exaggerated pictures and crazy stories that can be very fun for children.
