Favourite Poems Old and New I’d like to talk to you about poetry in your home.You might wonder what poetry books to get, what kind to get and where to go for poetry books and you could end up with a whole book shelf of poetry books covering different categories, themes and topics and that is why we particularly love this book and why it is the only poetry book we supply in Oikos, it’s a wonderful omnibus of a selection of poems, old and new, funny poems, serious poems, simple poems and more complex poetry to teach your children for memorisation, communication skills and to develop a love for poetry.
I’d like to share a little testimony with you of a young lady that came to visit us after many years of being home educated (Homeschooled) and she’s now an Oikos graduate, and she said that of all the Oikos resources she had used her absolute favourite one was, Favourite Poems, Old and New. That gives an indication of how poetry became something in their family that was to be treasured and cherished and it is the same in our family. We’ve had SO much fun with poetry.
Once people have got this book they don’t feel they need to run around looking for a variety of different poetry books because it is very comprehensive.
Furthermore if you are using LLATL, Learning Language Arts through Literature, and KONOS, you will find this an invaluable resource due to the many references made in LLATL and KONOS for this specific poetry book. To summarise, this one volume is equivalent to an entire shelf of poetry books.
Lastly, please take a look, or listen, to Andrew Pudewa’s Excellence in Poetry resource. Here the poems are all read aloud on CD so there is audio interaction with this being more than a poetry book but also developing other skills with poetry as the tool.
