As a teacher it is important to take note in how you read and share poetry with children. This unit allows room for flexibility and choice of poetry to utilize in your own classroom. If you do not like a particular poem, why would you share it with your class? I am not suggesting that there is a right or wrong way to read poetry. I am merely advising that you try not to convey a negative vibe or attitude about a poem, or collection of poetry. Children are very bright and pickup on cues such as body language and always notice your tone and inflection as a reader. "A poem must interest you as well as be one that you feel is right for your audience." (Hopkins 1988, 22). For some, it may be easy to put on a show and pretend that you absolutely love reading every book within your school curriculum. However, if you do not possess this magical talent, I would advise you choose and utilize poetry in your classroom that you actually like.
