Pack in the Poetry!


Each day after the lunch-and-play hour, the students help choose the literature that will be shared during the “Real Aloud” time.  Jennifer has an excellent eye for beautifully illustrated works that introduce different time periods across the world as well as represent a variety of backgrounds and nationalities of their authors.  She is a regular at the Baltimore County libraries and, again, we at GFT are so fortunate to have her and her love of learning helping to guide our students’ inquisitive minds!

Some of my favorite memories of reading when I was a child were the poems we would read together as a family.  I do have to admit, this is a practice I need to incorporate more into our homeschool life!  What are some of your favorites from the past?  Please feel free to let us know so we can share the works with our children, as well!
