Introduction

In this portfolio assessment, I choose poetry stories, I should listen to them


(audio). The two stories that I chose it are the itsy bitsy spider and We ’re Going on
a Bear Hunt.

Poetry

“There are a variety of poetry books available for young children: collections of
poems written by the same author or related to the same theme, collections of
poems from multiple poets, and illustrated versions of a single poem. Each
introduces the reader to the sounds of language. Rhyming poetry, especially ones
with playful words, help children develop phonemic awareness” (Types of Books to Read to
Young Children, 2018) .
