By Shelley Tucker. By developing elements of poetry already present in everyday language, the author makes writing poetry seem as natural as talking, and she shows a knack for creating writing-starters that make readers itch for the fun of wordplay. Both books follow the same format: She introduces a poetic concept (such as metaphor, personification, simile, or alliteration), provides a reproducible worksheet to kick-start the writing process, and follows up with a page of model student poems. Painting the Sky: Writing Poetry With Children works best for grades 3–6, while Kindle the Fire: Writing Poetry With Middle School Students is aimed at grades 4–8, but both books can be adapted for students of all ages. Bibliographies. Glossaries. 8½" x 11". Good Year.
