For the Love of Language: Poetry for Every Learner

For the Love of Language: Poetry for Every Learner

by Nancy Lee Cecil




All children are natural poets—even those who are academically at-risk. In For the Love of Language, the author illustrates how literacy scaffolds can release the poet within every child. Explore colour, nonsense, and shape poems; modelled poetry, free verse, alliteration, limericks; haiku, argument, alphabet poems; and many more. Each poetry activity provides a description, an easy-to-follow pattern, lead-in activities, and student-written samples. Winner of Learning Magazine Teachers’ Choice Award.
