Kristine O'Connell George's Children's Poetry Corner
Children's poetry resource.
GRADE LEVEL: K-5

http://www.kristinegeorge.com/

CONTENT:
Children's writer Kristine George presents useful activities for teachers and librarians to engage children in poetry.
AESTHETICS:
The site has a simple user-friendly format with soft colors and cute graphics. RealPlayer or Windows Media Player are needed for audio and can be downloaded from the site.
ORGANIZATION:
A left-side navigation menu transports visitors to each area of the site.
REVIEW:
Although this site is clearly a promotion of the author's books and poems, there is enough free material to warrant a visit. Separate sections for Teachers and Students include an annotated booklist for writing and teaching poetry, suggested ways to celebrate poetry, ideas and resources for teaching poetry, teacher's guides for the some of George's current books, audio files of selected poems, tips for young poets, quotations about poetry, illustrated poems, and more.
