Today’s Thoughtful Thursday features a delightful video from PBS News Hour in which author Jason Reynolds explains how poetry can help reluctant readers learn to love literature. Reynolds notes, “The separate stanzas aid and perpetuate a kind of incremental reading one small chunk at a time” which makes it much more approachable and enjoyable. Definitely worth viewing–it will inspire you to share some poetry with your children! Which is what we are shooting for with each Thoughtful Thursday. You can find the video here. Enjoy!
