All the World Poetry Activity for Kids

22 February


Kids and poetry! So many kids listen to and enjoy poetry from a young age without ever realizing it in the form of nursery rhymes. They don't consider it boring or a chore to read, and it shouldn't be. I intend my kids to grow up with poetry in their lives, so having a poetry month with Poppin's Book Nook was a great idea. 


Now there are a lot of great books of poetry out there for kids, but I wanted to find one poem that we could actual do something with rather then a collection of poems. We happened upon All the World at the library one day, and I loved the illustrations. Imagine how happy I was when it turned out to be a poem as well! 


The basis of the poem is that the world is made up of everything and everyone, including (or even especially) those every day things we do that don't seem like any big deal at the time! It really is a gorgeous book!

Supplies for All the World Poetry Activity

Colored pencils (optional)


To go along with this simple poem, I printed out some simple outlines of the world for the kids to fill in. They started by lightly shading the continents green and the oceans blue with colored pencil. 

Then I had them put things that described them or were important to them all over the world. 

We used various colors of green and blue markers to add some interest too. Green on the land and blue in the water of course. Naturally I had to spell lots of words for them as well as fill out my little guys, but they came up with lots of ideas. And as you would expect, there were things that were similar in all their worlds, and there were things that were different in all their worlds. 


And now I also have a little glimpse into their world that I can hold onto for when they are older! It will be interesting to see how it changes!




Stop by and see what kind of poetry activities the other Poppin's Book Nook bloggers enjoyed!
