Poetry Writing Through the Colors: The Sentence ZoneFebruary 9th, 2010
Our kids often get assignments where they have to write a poem, and they often struggle with it. Poetry writing is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when you have LD, dyslexia, or ADHD. Even gifted kids can struggle with poetry writing. It doesn’t matter if you are homeschooling or in a public school, poetry writing can be difficult for anyone.
However, writing poetry doesn’t have to be so-o-o hard! There are many different types of poems, and I’ve found one of the easiest types of poetry to teach my kids is the Haiku, specifically the Cinquain type of Haiku Poem. Learn how to use the Sentence Zone for writing poems. This is made really easy using The Sentence Zone game because you can write the poem with colors.
Using The Sentence Zone game makes writing poetry easy for kids with LD, dyslexia, ADHD, or even gifted.
