Poetry charts can encourage children to think about how illustrations can support a poem.
Try this: After reading a poetry chart poem aloud, invite children to talk about why they think the illustrator chose to draw a particular picture. Then ask them to draw their own pictures about the poem; children may or may not pick the same scene to draw. Have children talk to the class or a partner about which part of the poem they drew and why.
