How do poetry worksheets help to read a poem?
There can be a number of poetry worksheets for each grade from kindergarten to the tenth. Worksheets on nursery rhymes like ‘Ba, Ba, black sheep’, ‘Little Miss Muppet’, Johnny, Johnny’ to more serious poems like ‘An Ode to Nightingale’, ‘The Solitary Reaper’, and ‘Daffodils’ teach kids to appreciate poetry and its nuances. Poetry readers often make the gross mistake of trying to decode a poem at the very first reading. Or if they don’t, they conveniently conclude something is wrong with them or with the poem. Worksheets on poetry intervene at this juncture and help readers and students appreciate poetry the way it’s supposed to be. Most often, the worksheets deal with a small portion of a poem or a singular feature of a poem, like the worksheet ‘Poetic Device Quiz’ helping readers analyze it step by step. However they also teach students and budding little poets to write poems too! In other words, poetry worksheets are poetry teachers incarnate!
