Poetry

I came across a Facebook post from HSC today that pointed me in the direction of another cool and free resource!

The Complete 10 Week Poetry for Kids Course

There are lots of ways you can use this for your homeschool. One would be to assign it to your kids but I doubt you’d get the results you really wanted. If you asked your kids if they are interested in poetry and if they wanted to go through the course with you, they’d get more out of it. But if you have kids like mine, they’re probably not interested at all. My solution would be to take the course myself, very publicly, and share what I’m learning with them daily. My kids love poetry but for a long time they didn’t even know! So much of their favorite music has wonderful poetry. I just needed to point it out a couple times when we were listening to music in the car. Now they point lyrics that really speak to them all the time. When I find poetry that speaks to me deeply, I tend to share it with them as well.
