April is here and I have a complied a collection of a few poems for your student to copy for handwriting, copywork and/or dictation. I chose a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson who was an Scottish author most known for his books of Treasure Island, The Black Arrow, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
While I have read Treasure Island, I also read the book of poetry called A Child’s Garden of Verses (first published in 1885) that I thoroughly enjoyed as a child. It’s interesting that books stay with you for years. So, please be encouraged if you are having your children read poetry and you wonder if it is worth it when you hear protests. I am proof to have your child read and study poetry. 🙂 Happy April!
