What's it about?

Poetry and wordplay are celebrated at this site, which features everything from how to write a limerick to a collection of silly poems about school, homework, gym class, and more. Try a \"poetry race\" with your friends and see how fast you can say a tongue-twister about \"Betty Botter.\" Or act out poems suggested in \"Poetry Theater.\" Aspiring poets can enter one of the site's ongoing poetry contests, but if you're not into writing your own poems, you can grade the work of others. Meadowbrook Press offers a page of recent poems written for kids by adults, Rate them A-F to let the editors know if the lines are hot or not.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

This is a wonderful site to get kids to really enjoy poetry. Not only is it well organized, but its colorful graphics, fun writing "contests," and expansive choices of goofy poems are also perfect for budding tween poets. Parents will appreciate the fact that kids can discover how to express themselves through poetry, but kids will be having too much fun to realize they're actually learning something.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about writing poetry. Have you ever written a poem? If so, what kind? Do you think writing something down is a good release for some kids? Why are funny poems sometimes more easy to relate to?
