The poem in this worksheet is simple and sweet, and your child will be able to relate to it easily, as it talks about an animal they probably love; cats! The poem contains 3 stanzas of four lines each. Ask your child if they know what a stanza is. If they don’t, teach them that a stanza is a group of lines in a poem, which are usually separated by a noticeable space. Now, read the poem aloud to your child and make sure they take note of the places where a stanza space is visible. Read the question at the bottom of the printout, and help them check the correct answer.
Do your kids write poems often? Or, are they showing an interest in short poems which they maybe ask you to read to them from time to time? Whichever way, it is good to encourage your child to connect with their poetic side, just like the poet who wrote the poem in this worksheet. The poem is about the butterfly, and the poet talks about the things she loves about the butterfly. Read the poem aloud to your child, and then read the questions at the bottom of the printout, and help them answer the simple questions.
