Kids Poems: 3rd and 4th Grade
Regie Routman shares her delightful selection of free verse poems written by third-and fourth graders that will inspire your students. Regie provides strategies for using kids' poems as models to guide children to write poems about things they know and care about, from eating French fries to secret places and family trips. She shows how she demonstrates the poetry-writing process to children: thinking aloud and drafting poems about her own life, and then inviting children to write on their own. Includes 20 reproducible poems written and illustrated by third-and fourth graders.
