Welcome to the Children’s University Learning Destination, Kristin’s Poems for Kids!
Have you got your passport ready?
To receive a stamp, you can either:
Once you’ve chosen a poem you really like, leave a comment in the comment box under the poem.
What do you comment on? Anything you like. But here are some suggestions:
Tell me why you chose this poem.
What did you like about it?
Does the poem remind you of anything you’ve done or anyone you know?
Comment about the images the poem paints in your head.
What words did you particularly like in the poem?
Did you notice any figurative language, such as alliteration, similes, metaphors or personification?
Did the poem rhyme, or not rhyme?
Your comment and my reply will be posted on the website within about a week. You will need to check back on the website, find your comment and my reply posted under the poem, and show them to your School Coordinator, who will issue a stamp for 30 minutes for the poem conversation.
Or you can write a poem! You can try some of the poems on the Write a Poem page, or write a poem of your choice. Post it in the comments section on the Your Poems page. I look forward to reading it! I will approve it and leave a comment about it within a week, which you can show to your School Co-ordinator for a 30 minute stamp.
