My kid is almost 7 years old, that is to say he just enrolled in Y2. His English is ok -- he's read some Roald Dahl's beautiful stories (Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, BFG etc) and quite enjoys them.
Now, my problem is, how shall he start learning poems? English is not my mother tongue, I can't teach him poetry. I'm wondering, how could I help him picking him poetry, step by step, gradually?
I would like to find a gentle introduction, that would ignite the little flame in his heart on the beauty of poems, to appreciate the rhyme and imagination, as an invitation to another world besides novel. Better still, if there are some introduction on the forms and some analysis on the poems, and some exercises so he might try on his own.
