Writing Prompt for Kids & Teens #44 – Happiness

Video Posted on

Today I’m especially happy. So here is one prompt to get you writing a positive poem. (I know this video is kind of bizarre. Don’t judge me. It’s a really great song.)

“Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + The Machine

Writing Prompt for Kids & Teens #43 – More Poetry Recordings

Video Posted on Updated on

My last set of writing prompts were two poetry readings done by Dame Judi Dench and Jeremy Irons. This set are done by Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Hiddleston (yes, “Loki” from the Marvel series of movies: Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World).

There is an awesome new app for poetry lovers of all ages called iF Poems. You can find it on the Apple app store for only $0.99. I love it because it has poems grouped by either poets, age ranges or topics. There is a feature to record yourself reading the poems or you can listen to recordings by several actors: Helena Bonham Carter, Billy Nighy, Harry Enfield and Tom Hiddleston. I highly recommend the app for parents, kids, teens, teachers or any poetry lover. It’s fantastic.

For now, please enjoy these two readings:

“The Duck and the Kangaroo” by Edward Lear, read by Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Hiddleston

Writing Prompt for Kids & Teens #39

Oooo! Have you ever had a day where you were so tired that you were almost dizzy?

Write a poem about something that wouldn’t be wise to do when you’re dizzy, like walking a tightrope or driving a car. How would it feel? What would happen?
