The FREE October A Poem Each Week has arrived! This time of year gets super busy with Red Ribbon Week, assemblies, parties, and testing. Poetry is a great way to squeeze in read alouds and introduce and review new standards. This month we are looking at 4 poems.
Dreams by Langston Hughes
Explorers by Jessica Zannini
Theme in Yellow by Carl Sandburg
Halloween by Ken Nesbitt
Each of these poems can be easily found in your school or local library. Many of these poems used can be found with an online search as well. If you have trouble locating these poems, please ask your school library media specialist for assistance. Use these FREE resources to get your students talking about poetry. These are great fillers for read alouds, end-of-the day, and winding down from recess. Great for K-5th grade.
Each week includes discussion questions, and suggested activities to engage or connect with the poem of the week.
