Reflection of an Echo
Teaching Children to enjoy poetry tip #1 of 5
"It takes two to speak the truth - one to speak and the other to hear." - Henry David Thoreau
Convoke v. t. - To assemble together. [L. convoco; Fr. convoquer]
convocate v. t., convocation n.
"In the first day there shall be a holy convocation." - Exodus 12:16a
Read poetry that you both enjoy. Doing this is a way to keep you from being bored and the child from being bored. If you don't like mother goose rhymes, don't read them, (Don't read Homer either). There are many good childrens books, that may peak your interest and theirs. Authors like A. A. Milne, Bruce Lansky, and Shel Silverstein are good places to start.
Just read things you enjoy. As a general rule if you don't enjoy it, they won't, because they see no enthusiasm coming from you. Not to say, that they will always like what you like, but you do need to enjoy what you teach.more
