This week, Mrs. Yollis' class is learning about poetry!
When reading a poem aloud it is important to:
1. Practice reading the poem in a clear voice.
2. Change the sound of your voice to help express the idea of the poem.
3. Pause a little at the end of each line. Pause longer at punctuation marks.
4. Look up at your listeners whenever you can.
Have a listen as we recite the poem Seal by the poet William Jay Smith.
