5-Minute Poems

Can young children write poetry? Of course! Your child will learn how to write a poem in 5 minutes!

30 Minute Program

 

$150


Poetry is a perfect medium for kids because it doesn't require complete sentences, punctuation, or even rhyme! I'll read my picture book, When Poke Woke, then we'll talk about what it means to be a good friend. Next, in just 5 minutes, I'll guide your child to write a poem about a friend. Then we'll create a second poem on a topic of your child's choice. Once you know what to put in each line, you can help your child write dozens of original poems. Note: If your child doesn't yet read and write, he or she can dictate them to you.
