Writing Poetry with Children

  1. Poetry is an excellent first writing project for reluctant writers. Children will be exposed to reading and writing Haiku and free verse. Rhyming poetry while silly and engaging is really challenging for young children to write. Please help by exposing your child to poetry that doesn’t rhyme….”free verse.” 
  2. There is a poetry contest that both Fox Den and Eagle’s Nest will be entering. The deadline is at the end of February. More details to come. For now, know that the deadline is in February.
