Poetry Friday!




This poem is from a GREAT new poetry book called SHOUT: LITTLE POEMS THAT ROAR. Every poem in this book begs to be read aloud. I can't wait to add it to our collection for Poetry Friday! reading. I know the kids will love it. Every poem is as fun as the next. Enjoy!


SHOUT

Shout it! Shout it! POETRY!
Fun for you and fun for me.

Clap your hands! Stomp your feet!
Feel the rhythm! Feel the beat!

Chunky words all chopped in chips!
Silky sounds upon your lips.

Tell a story--happy, sad;
Silly, sorry; good or bad.

Leap a leap, hop a hop,
See the ocean in one drop.

Shout it! Shout it! POETRY!
Fun for you and fun for me.

    I'm so glad you went back to get this book. I love the poems in it, too! I'll be using it with my kids next week -- I had to switch to Poetry Wednesdays.
