The student will demonstrate accurate matching of voice to print, identify beginning sounds, recognize space between words and end punctuation, identify common sightwords, and rhyming words with each poem.
This Concept of Word poetry set is perfect to use in September during apple picking season! The set has everything you need from teaching charts, to the poem on sentence strips for modeling with and without touch points, the poem in book form and a printable of the poem for your students' poetry anthologies.
Having a concept of word is the sign a child is ready to read, and including Concept of Word lessons into the language arts routine is very important for kindergarten (and first grade) teachers. This free sample is part of my FALL BUNDLE, YEARLY BUNDLE, AND MEGA BUNDLE. If you enjoy using it with your students, imagine the growth you'd have with using 1-2 poems per week! I promise. They work well!
Each poetry set comes with:
10 pages total
HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE:
1) The teachers models with a projection of the teaching posters on a Smartboard.
2) Once students have memorized the poem, they continue working on tracking and reading the poem.
3) In small groups, practice words in isolation, constructing sentences, identifying sightwords and beginning sounds, rhyming words, reading punctuation, tracking, and matching print.
4) Move it to a literacy station for those who are ready to practice on their own or with an assistant.
These poems also work very well for repeated reading with parent volunteers, for sight word hunts, for letter recognition, picture clues, and so much more.
