Draw Pictures as You Read Poetry Together
This National Poetry Month, choose several poems to read to your child, and gather some art supplies together – such as paper, markers, and colored pencils. Then, as you read each poem, ask him to draw what he sees in his mind's eye. When he's done, try to guess which drawing goes with each poem. After a few short poems, swap roles, so that he has a chance to choose the poems and you get to create the drawings.
