Check out poetry from the library. Younger kids will like Shel Silverstein; older kids may like authors like Eliot, Pound, Bishop, Atwood, or even just a collection of modern poetry. Make a practice of reading it out loud to each other. Your kids will roll their eyes at first, and keep rolling them, and roll them some more. But, eventually, they’ll come around — especially if you offer a really great treat for every poem they memorize. One more thing they can write down in their journal — along with illustrations!
