This file includes two poems about apples. The plan includes introduction and discussion questions. It also has plans for discussing and teaching print concepts. I use the shorter poem for teaching about print concepts since it matches the skill level I am focusing on. Longer version is a commonly known rhyme (Apple, Apple on the Tree) and is a great addition to your poetry folders.
Discussion Questions Aligned to Common Core Standards including talking about Print Concepts
Suggestion for Shared or Individual Writing Response
