General tips for choosing

*Ask your child which poem they like best (remember the warning above).

*Ask your child to read each of the poems at least twice.

*Listen for pronunciation and fluency difficulties (e.g. stumbling on words).

*Determine which one sounds the most natural when your child reads it.

*Ask your child what they think each of the poems mean to check for understanding.


"I am soooooo touched by the thoughtfulness and recognition that you bestowed upon Anthony. I have to say your love and dedication for students is unfathomable, and I can see God's grace in how you steer your students through their challenges, pursuits and most importantly, difficult times."

-Edna (Parent of 3 students)
