Yes, indeed, everyone can be a poet! Poetry is not the elusive and impractical exercise most of us think. It is just a natural outlet of emotions, thoughts, experiences and more. This unique book is akin to attending a teaching resource workshop where the teacher-poet is enthusiastic to share his experience and learning about the inventive, writing process and skills of poetry. The straightforward and handy techniques used in this unpretentious book, bring out the natural poet in all of us. The volume offers tools, practice, and examples. Dotted with exercises, materials in this book are invaluable for classroom teaching. Who says children cannot be trained to write poetry? Sarika Singh's well-structured, undemanding, encouraging and inspiring tutorial, is like a series of stepping stones for all those who have imagined putting pen to paper to articulate a sentiment. Goods teaching should demonstrate, not inform or advise. That principle in practise, is what makes this volume extraordinary. Poetry writing never seemed so simple!

A poem begins (and ends) with a single line, and expands into a countless number of lines. Each group of lines is a specific type of poem with its unique rules and structure. In this book, I explore poetry writing; starting with the one-line poem and continuing in numeric order to a variety of multi-lines poems, including the age-less favorites like Haikus, Limericks, and Sonnets. Let's count and let's write poetry together. Be assured, It's as easy as counting 1-2-3!

Note to the Reader This is just a quick note to the reader. Obviously if you bought my book then you enjoy poetry. When I began writing poetry I was a 13 year old eighth grader. I had never ever attempted writing a poem before that. I guess the way that I started with poetry was bottling everything inside me that I had to let it out somehow. So I ended up writing about it. I didn't notice that it had taken the form of a poem until halfway through it. To me it sounded so much like a poem. I showed it to my friend and she asked me when I took poetry lessons. Funny thing is that I never took poetry lessons. It just came out of me. I got encouraged so I began to write down everything that came to my mind. Unfortunately I was young, so most of my poems were about love and pain. I knew I could use my poem skills to write inspirational and better poems than just love, but I never took that into consideration. It was only until this year that I started to wise up. I began writing about inspirational topics. I got so happy when I wrote my first uplifting poem. It was like lifting a burden off my shoulders. Everything that is written in this book is meant with all good means. Some people say it's a talent, some people say that it's a gift. Well whatever it is, I want to share it with you. I'm a 14 year old tenth grader (sophomore) now and I know I'm young. I'm sure you'll like my poetry, and if you don't just keep in mind that I'm still very young. I respect your opinion. I'm still trying to get better. I'm not perfect. I really hope you enjoy the book!

This volume demonstrates how the social and instructional worlds that children inhabit influence their poetry writing and performances. Drawing on rich vignettes of students from different racial, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds, it describes and analyzes the work of eight to ten-year-old U.S. students involved in a month-long poetry unit. Children Writing Poems outlines the value of a ‘poetic-functional’ approach to help children convey a poem’s meaning and mood, and expresses the need for educators to scaffold children’s oral readings and performances over time.
