The Best Summer Poems for Kids
Summer is here, and it’s time to have some fun outdoors with friends and family. These Summer poems for kids are a great way to celebrate fun in the summer, or pass the time on a rainy day.
Father’s Day Poems for Kids
Let’s kick off Summer by celebrating Dads and Stepdad’s. Before your kids are out for Summer break, print off your favorite Father’s Day poem, and let the kids take it home to show their Dad how much they love them!
Or, if you are a parent, and you’re looking for a short poem for Father’s Day, you can simply print it off, and attach it to a cute Father’s Day gift.
All three poems for Dads are included! (from a boy, from a girl, and a handprint poem)

Take Me Out to the Ocean
Many kids associate summer fun with taking a family beach trip, swimming in the ocean, or perhaps even visiting a local aquarium. And, if you visit Summer camps for kids, you will also find they love teaching ocean themes during the hot summer months.
Take Me Out to the Ocean is sung to the classic tune, Take Me Out to the Ballgame.
Before teaching this cute Summer poem for kids, get the kiddos talking about what animals live in the ocean. Record their answers, writing the words and drawing pictures, on chart paper. Then, teach them these fun ocean song lyrics. Have them follow along, tracking print from left to right, as you sing it together. When done, they can color the pictures, and draw a picture of their own on the back.
Take a little bit of time to encourage the young students to talk about their favorite types of poems. Do they like short poems, funny poems, nursery rhymes, animal poems, or making their own poems.
