 Between classes 3 and 5, children go through major cognitive development. If they are exposed to good literature at this stage, it helps their growth in many ways. Getting to know famous English poems like A Good Boy, by Robert Louis Stevenson; At the Zoo by William Thackeray; A Christmas Carol by G.K. Chesterton and The Children’s Hour by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, is beneficial for the young learners. They understand the language better and also develop a taste for poetry. 


Thus, children acquire a better vocabulary. Their own writing talents and reading hobbies also get fuelled by reading classic poems.

The period between Class III and V is when children undergo the most cognitive development. Exposing them to classic English poetry at this age will stimulate their creative thinking and broaden their outlook towards the world. There are some excellent pieces of prose by Robert Frost, Lord Byron and John Keats that every child must read at this age. Besides stimulating their brains, it is also an excellent exposure to English literature. The comprehension skills of a child develop tremendously when exposed to such literature. Literary appreciation is a skill that must be taught to children at this age.

You can find some fabulous poems on these websites http://www.slideshare.net/Muhammad786/poems-fsci-englishbookiii, http://www.slideshare.net/Muhammad786/poems-fsci-englishbookiii, http://classicpoetryaloud.wordpress.com/worlds-most-popular-poems/ which can help your child develop taste in literature.

Who is your favourite poet?
