I posted earlier this week about how we have been doing our Poetry Tea Parties. It has been great fun! Make sure to read about it if you haven’t yet! This month we have been learning about Emily Dickinson. I wanted to share a little of what we have learned this month about some of her poems.
Did you know that some of her poems are actually riddles? In our book, Poetry for Young People, we first discovered the Emily Dickinson riddle poems. I read them aloud to my kids and they tried to guess what each was about. Some of them are easier than others! Without a little studying, I couldn’t even figure out a couple of them. The book has 7 of them, but I discovered another online that I included.
I thought it would be fun to share with you guys. So, I made them into printable notecards so you can quiz your kids, then even use them for memorization if you would like. Her work is now in the public domain, so they can be used freely.
I love this series of books!

If you would like more poetry cards, I made another set with a variety of poets to use for studying or memorizing.
