Common Core Poetry for K-1st grade. This packet includes the poem "Covers" by Nikki Giovanni as well as a brief biography of her life that can be enlarged and displayed in the classroom. I have also created the poem in the form of a rebus poem that can also be enlarged as well along with the plain text poem and used during large group. Also, included is a creative writing activity for students to create their own version of the poem "Covers".
