Poetry & Fairy Tales – 3rd Period Friday
$285.00 – $335.00
Poetry is a form of literary expression that all children seem to love. Some of the benefits of poetry include language development, creativity, writing skills, and communication skills. Fairy tales are stories passed on through generations that have wonderful characters, such as princesses and talking animals, that share themes or morals that help children enrich their imagination and gain a deeper understanding of life’s great truths. This course will allow children to engage and learn from an array of beloved fairy tales and various genres of poetry, through listening and recitation, writing short poems together as a class, acting out and retelling fairy tales, and playing games and doing crafts that correspond with the theme that we are discussing.
