Gr. 2-3 Poems for Memorization and Copywork

Child's Garden of Verses

Do your kids memorize poetry? Many homeschool curriculums encourage the memorization of poetry because poetry fills a child’s mind with beautiful imagery and word patterns. That is why my kids copy out one verse of a poem each week and then memorize it. At the end of the week, they recite as much of the poem as they know.

Here is a small poetry book I made for my son, to help him memorize and copy poems from Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses.
