Welcome to the Children’s University Learning Destination, Kristin’s Poems for Kids!
Have you got your passport ready?
To receive a stamp, you will first need to read some of the poems on this website. There are plenty to choose from: poems about animals, beach poems, poems in the sky (my favourites!), school poems, silly poems and zoo poems.
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 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.
