Anthony Weber | Troy Daily News Children at the Overfield School have been engaged in poetry this week with Artist in Residence Nancy Kangas from Columbus. During her two-week residency at the school, Kangas has helped students express their ideas in poetic form. According to Kangas, children have experienced the fun of words while combining sensory information to create poems. Here, Kangas shares each of the poems with 3- and 4-year-old students, including Miri Patton on Thursday during her visit through a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. Children have created works on a broad range of topics, including hockey, wood chippers, animals and magic. Rhythm and pattern are important components of poetry and also excellent tools for early literacy development.
