Poetry is also a wonderful way, in a less intimidating way, to introduce new words to students. I am a certified elementary education teacher with a master's degree in elementary education. I have experience working with children of all ages inside and outside the classroom. My strength is in reading, writing, phonics and spelling with elementary level children but I have also worked with high school studies on creative writing assignments [more]
