Mondays have been designated poetry day in our home school schedule.
This morning my kiddos each wrote a couplet.  They had some help from Mama, but came up with their topic, first line ending word and lists of rhyming words.  Plus they helped count syllables.
They are cute little poems, so I thought I would share them here.
The book is being read by the boy.
A day reading books is such a joy.
Outdoors plays the boy.
He has his best toy.
Quietly sits the doll.
There she is not afoul.
We began our poetry time by reading Psalm 121.  Then we read several poems from Favorite Poems Old and New   Selected by Helen Ferris.
Our poetry lesson came from Writing Poetry with Children  published by Evan-Moor.
