The Way to Play Croquet - A Poetry Break

Spring is upon us and now the weather is perfect for outside games and activities. Share this poem with the kids before you play the game!

The Way to Play Croquet
by George Shannon

Through the thicket
to the stick it
needs to click. It
isn't very hard.
Till I block it,
swing, and knock it
far outside the yard!

This is a great poem to share when doing the games. Invite the kids to create their own poems about how their favorite outdoor game works.
