Recitation is a form of self-expression with the creativity of words and emotion to convey a message to the audience. Reading poetry with correct intonation and pronunciation makes it easier for younger children to understand the significance of rhythm in verses. Recitation is attributed to the rhythmic structure of the stanzas that help create a known context to new and unknown words.
Children learn to pick up patterns and sequences in poetry recitations. As they practice reciting the poetry, it links memory with audio and visual events, helping them comprehend hidden meaning. When reciting poetry, students get an opportunity to express themselves with proper gestures and voice modulation.
