Poetry in the Classoom
Kids’ Favorite Funny Poems Enhance Learning
Meadowbrook Press’s line of giggle-packed poetry will have students—even reluctant readers—asking for more. Not only can you make reading fun, you can also help develop important skills.
Studies show that poetry and humor can help kids both in and out of the classroom. Humorous poetry can relieve stress from home, spur the development of language skills and help children understand symbols.
Facts About Humorous Poetry in the Classroom
“One of the signs of giftedness is a keen sense of humor…perhaps poetry is the quickest way to insert humor into the classroom. We’re fortunate to have a number of outstanding poets who engage in writing poetry that tickles children’s funny bones.” -The Delta Kappa Gamma Bulletin for Women Educators, Spring 1999
“Sharing humor in the classroom may be the only relief children have from the situations they encounter in their lives.” -The Delta Kappa Gamma Bulletin for Women Educators, Spring 1999
