With young learners, it is infinitely more difficult to grasp the usage of voice variables. Reciting poetry helps place emphasis on the sound and the rhythm of language, thus building a child’s phonemic awareness and help to solidify a foundation for reading abilities. 3. Poetry and Rhymes Help Develop Memorization Skills Children also learn to pick up patterns and sequences in poetry recitations. As they practice memorizing the poetry to recite, it links memory with audio and visual events, helping them develop memorization skills. The benefits do not end here. Being proficient in memorization, patterns, and sequences in turns give students an advantage in learning new languages, reading comprehension and mathematics. 4. Poetry and Rhymes Help Develop Self Expressions When reciting poetry students are given the freedom to express feelings to their audience. It is a form of self- expression with the creativity of words and emotion to convey a message to the audience. This message takes on different tones, playing out the different emotions of being humorous to being defeated to being furious or to being loving. In poetry recitations, not only are the words used to give a meaning to the poem, but the voice, volume, inflexion, pitch, pauses and speed of a person contributes to the entire recitation experience as well, enhancing the meaning of the poem. And in so doing, the poem is brought to life with the passion and vocal expression of the presenter.

5. Poetry and Rhymes Help Develop Physical Awareness Students who recite poetry are aware of breathe coordination, movements of the mouth and other physical gestures as they align these to the rhythm in the poetry. They also make use of gestures and facial expressions to connect with their audience on an emotional level. An additional bonus for practicing poetry recitations us that learners gain confidence in public speaking skills. We have observed that students who have recited poetry in public before are more open to speaking in front of an unknown audiences. Early expose would make the children feel more at ease with taking on new challenges with meeting new people and networking. Poetry Recitation Is Used In Scholar Base At Scholar Base , we incorporate poetry recitation as part of our curriculum. Children are given the opportunity to read aloud a variety of poetry at poetry recitals, including ones written by published poets as well as their own original poems and our students absolutely enjoy the learning experience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
