Free Halloween Poem for Kids

If you’re new around here, you’ll quickly learn my love for teaching ELA using poems for kids.

The benefits of poems and nursery rhymes for younger kids are extensive. For example, poems can help build memory, receptive and expressive language skills, concepts of print, vocabulary, creativity, and make learning to read fun!

Little kids love the rhyming and repetition of this 10 Little Witches poem, and are eager to sing and read along. Ten Little Witches is the perfect way to bridge your reading and math activities for these special days!

To get into the Halloween spirit, I’m giving away a FREE Halloween poem for the young kids to enjoy!  When you sign up for the Little Learning Corner newsletter, you get the Ten Little Witches poem, free. Grab it, HERE.
