During my years in the classroom, I discovered the best way to focus my students' attention for new content was a choral read of thematic poetry written with colorful images.
July’s 9-page poem collection includes five thematic 8 ½ x 11" images you can enlarge if needed. The font sizes are large as well.
The five themes this collection introduces are:
“July”~ Blue Mountain cards
“As American As Apple Pie”
“Sleeping Outdoors”~ Marchette Chute
“The Tale of Silas Griner”
~ Mz. Bizzy Lizzy ~
"Riddle” ~ Anonymous
