Benefits of Poetry

Poetry fills the mind with new ways of communicating ideas, thoughts, and feelings. For children, who are daily learning and growing in this ability, that translates to both academic and emotional benefits.

When children read and memorize poetry it:

  1. Develops vocabulary
  2. Expands communication skills
  3. Encourages creativity
  4. Improves critical thinking
  5. Promotes empathy

Engage your child’s mind with poetry in fun, delightful ways this summer with the Poetry for Kids Summer Guide!

Below are some common download instructions that should help you.

  • Most mobile devices such as phones and tablets, do not allow downloading through a link.
  • All files are sent using PDF format. Most computers have pre-installed Adobe Reader on them, but if your particular laptop, PC, or mobile device does not have a PDF reader, you’ll need one to view the download. Adobe Reader is the most common one and it’s free. You can download it here.
  • If you can’t find the file once it’s downloaded, try looking in Downloads under My Computer or search the title of the file on your computer for where it could be hiding.

Some products are sent using a compressed ZIP file. Here’s how to unzip a ZIP file:

  • On a laptop or PC- Save the ZIP file to your computer, right-click and select, “Extract All.” This creates a new file on your computer in which you can open. From there you can add the file to iCloud or Dropbox to access the files on your mobile device. Occasionally, browser apps may be glitchy during downloading. If this occurs, please try using a different browser.
  • On a mobile device- Before downloading the ZIP file directly to your mobile device, you may need a free app to unzip the product (try FileExplorer Free). This allows you to unzip the folder in order to access the download. Some mobile devices allow you to hold the zipped file icon and then click, “Extract.”
