Dogs and puppies! Poetry and reading fluency! They are surely my favorite things! I've combined my love of all four in this literacy learning pack! It is full of original, rhymed poems that your primary grade students will love to practice with a partner, for homework, or as a group Reader's Theater! What a fun way to build reading fluency and phonemic awareness!

Each of the four original poems in this pack has a related context clue, rhyming, and poetry-writing practice page that you can use over the course of one week. I alternate using the materials in whole group lessons and as literacy center activities.

Take a look at the product thumbnails and thorough preview to see everything that is included!

The four original poems are:

  • Pet Store
  • Pup Love
  • My Best Friend, Rosie
  • They Bark At The Park

A bonus persuasive writing activity is also included:

  • Please Get Me This Pet!

This resource is great to use around Valentine's Day or in conjunction with any unit study about dogs! Students will love re-reading the short verses independently or with a partner to practice their rhyming skills and reading with expression! You can see the writing pages in my PUPPY LOVE BLOG POST. Other poetry resources in my store are featured there as well!



So much in this that can be really delved into. Really helped students see the rhyme in words and then add their own words to the list. We went on a rhyming word hunt with words around the room and they had to sort them using the sheets in this pack.
