Sometimes, the best way to soak up a lazy summer day is by lounging in a comfy outdoor spot with your child. Peaceful afternoons in the shade can be a great excuse for a picnic, but they can also be an inspiration for some descriptive poetry authored by one of the most original and brilliant people you know: your child.
This activity allows him to translate what he observes around him into a beautiful poem. Plus, the process will sharpen his awareness that words hold meaning and are a way of expressing himself. This activity is the perfect introduction to a core year one science theme: the five senses. Whether or not your child can write or spell yet makes no difference with Instant Poetry!
