For a start, the author discusses the role and types of activity in school education and literary
communication of kindergarten and school children. Next, she points to multidimensional meaning
of a game of poeticizing which arouses and exercises imagination, sensitizes aesthetically and
evokes creative expression. Thus, it has an influence on an intellectual and mental development of
a young person. Besides, a child, in view of born inclinations for fantasy, as a sort of born poet,
which was emphasised by outstanding poets (Julian Tuwim, Jerzy Ficowski, among others).
The author supports these theoretical considerations with certain examples. She presents and
discusses children’s and youth’s poetical samples, among other things, the results of the task based
on a “half-poem” by Wisława Szymborska Museum and poems by the sixth grade students inspired
by Zbigniew Herbert’s poem A box called imagination. She supports the initial theses of the article
on an educational role of a game of poeticizing with children and young people.
