Poetry Schmoetry (Monday ages 6-9)


Poetry Schmoetry (Monday ages 6-9)


Course Description: Do you think poetry is too structured, tedious, or just plain boring? Or maybe poetry just takes a backseat to reading stories, doing mathematics, and experimenting with science. Well, buckle up! Because it’s going to be a BUMPY, GIGGLY ride!

In the course Poetry Schmoetry, kids will get to experience silly, funny verse by the Princes and Princesses of Poetry – like Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, Tedd Arnold, Jane Yolen - and of course the King himself, Dr. Seuss, all while practicing phonics, writing, and presentation skills. Kids will use word families to find real (and nonsense) rhyming words, try their hands at different kinds of poems, like haikus, acrostics, shapes, and limericks, and then get a chance to read or act out their masterpieces!

Please make sure you complete the enrollment process before registering for classes.  The enrollment fee has been waived, but we still need the information on that form.
