Ideas for Words and Poetry
The learning opportunities for encountering new sounds and words in the Early Years are vast. Children, at this age, love beginning to explore alliteration and rhyme. Listening to differences in sounds and words helps children develop good foundations for literacy.
This is the time of year to embrace words and poems with World Book Day and World Poetry Day both falling in March.
Encourage your burgeoning poets by taking a look at some of these activities to help children explore language.
