MEMORISING POEMS  when pupils memorise poems, they increase their vocabulary and develop the skill of using it expressively;  they build up a rich store of creative ways in which words can be used, and they begin to use them themselves.  to help pupils memorise a poem, read it aloud to them, then repeat it, encourage them to join in.  display an enlarged copy of the poem, or work with a small group of pupils who each have their own copy to follow.  read a line, then cover it and ask the pupils to repeat it, building up the number of lines covered, until the pupils can recite the entire poem. 5
