We will be using this book to strenghten our memory, practice handwriting, and practice public speaking. It’s a book full of short poems for all ages by authors like Mary Ann Hoberman, Gary Soto, Langston Hughes, John Keats, and many more. We will also incorporate poetry writing into this as well, for our language arts studies, by learning about poem structure and how it relates to music.

Young Sphinx loves to talk, especially when he is watching YouTube. He likes to give us his views on the videos and explain them from time to time. Today I decided to record one of his infamous conversations. This also served as practice in public speaking in which is a very important subject in my opinion. At age 6, now is a good time to introduce him to the art of public speaking and debate. It’s also important that he learns how to express his thoughts in an organized and thorough fashion. Give Young Sphinx your thoughts on how he can improve this very important skill.
