The writing process is complicated, with lots of competing requirements, and this often makes it overwhelming for children. However, poetry can provide an engaging and empowering ‘way in’ to this process.
One of the barriers to children’s writing development is the frustration and anxiety they often feel when they start each writing activity. What if they make a mistake? How do they write interesting sentences, with correct spellings, while also thinking about cohesion and structure? Poetical structures can be a safer, collaborative approach to help your children past that blank page anxiety. This 1-hour webinar will:
Explore some of our favourite poetry structures
Show how they can facilitate high-quality writing across the curriculum
Explain how this can improve self-esteem and confidence.
