O's Poetry Journal

I ordered this poetry journal for O(6) from Lakeshore, and she LOVES it!

Sadly, she says that reading is her least favorite part of school, but she's always excited to read her poem of the week.  We read it together 2 or 3 times before she reads it on her own.  After reading it a couple of times, she usually memorizes it.  She LOVES for me to introduce her to her family and friends so that she can perform her poems!

She looks through the book each week to choose the poem that she wants to read next.  She read "Jellyfish" while we were at the beach, and she was SO proud to read a birthday poem to her daddy and E(3) during their birthday weeks!


  1. When I saw this post I immediately thought it might be just the thing for my reluctant reader. She's never really liked being read to as she's far too active, but a short poem might be just the ticket! Thanks!

  2. Love this! How about adding illustrations for added comprehension.
