Exploring Literacy through Poetry: Poems That Celebrate Poetry.
Honeyghan, Glasceta
Florida Reading Quarterly, v36 n2 p26-31 Dec 1999
Sharing poems that celebrate books and reading throughout the school year can foster enjoyment of poetry as well as appreciation for reading. A variety of easy to read poems exist that vary from old and new, long and short, free-flowing verse and rhymed verse, and for young children as well as older children. Such poems can be read at odd moments of the day or built into a resource for a thematic unit. These poems deal with such topics as males in a caregiver role, teacher as nurturer, reading and sensory details, books that open the imagination, reading to be informed, "reading is a trip," reading and recognition of self, and humor. (Contains 12 references and 54 sources for poems and poetry books.) (RS)
