Boosting a Reader's Morale

When a child learns new skills that spur 
their reading and learning, please
"break out" and celebrate....... 

Why not "cheer," and give them
"two thumbs up?"  Let your
encouragement be the catalyst that
enables them to feel successful.

Promote Success #8: Poetry

By the Sea-Side 
                                       
~Robert Lewis Stevenson


When I went down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore. 

My holes were empty like a cup.
In every hole the sea came up,

Till it could come no more.

Poetry is another way of
enjoying language and stories.
